The National Black Programming Consortium is committed to a fully realized expression of democracy. We support diverse voices by developing, producing and distributing innovative media about the Black experience and by investing in visionary content makers.
What We Do
Since 1991, NBPC has invested more than $12 million dollars in iconic documentary content for public media broadcast and distributed hundreds of hours of historical, cultural and socially relevant content to PBS and community audiences. We have funded digital media content made exclusively for the web since 2006. NBPC’s professional development programs provide thousands of producers of color with resources and information needed to contend in an increasingly competitive industry. NBPC is the Executive Producer of the public television series "AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange", an anthology series featuring independent documentaries about the contemporary global black experience, now entering its eighth season.
Here is a small sample of programs funded by NBPC:
