The Black Arts Alliance was founded in August, 1998, by a group of artists and arts patrons. Recognition as a 501(c)(3) organization was established in an advance ruling by the Internal Revenue Service effective September 23, 1999. The Alliance is governed by a volunteer board of directors, including five officers: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Recording Secretary, and Membership Secretary. Board members and officers are elected for staggered terms at an annual meeting held in June of each year. Alliance members in good standing are allowed one vote at each quarterly and annual meeting.
