Awarding more than $14million in funding
Black Public Media (BPM), formerly known as National Black Programming Consortium, develops, produces, funds, and distributes media content about the African American and global Black experience. Our mission is to commit to a fully realized expression of democracy and we accomplish this by supporting diverse voices through training, education and investment in visionary content makers.
For 40 years, BPM has addressed the needs of unserved and underserved audiences. BPM continues to address historical, contemporary, and systemic challenges that traditionally impede the development and distribution of Black stories.

I wanted to thank each and everyone of you for awarding me the Nonso Christian Ugbode Digital Media Fellowship (NCU). As a young black man not even out of his undergraduate studies – truly at the beginning of his career – being awarded the NCU Fellowship is an amazing opportunity that words cannot fully describe. I am overly gracious to Black Public Media, the Ugbode Family, and all of the donors that made this fellowship possible.
