Arts & Letters

What is Arts & Letters?

The National Arts and Letters Commission was established in 1973, under the presidency of 15th National President Lillian Pierce Benbow. The ultimate goal of the Commission has been to boldly advance the black experience; highlighting the artistic contributions of African American people with an emphasis on positive roles of Black women. The Commission’s programming is carried out via chapters implementing the organizations national initiatives Delta Authors, Delta Red Carpet, DSTV  and Music Ministry.
