About the Creator and Founder - Agnes Moss

Agnes Moss is the Founder of National Black Movie Association, the Creator of National Black Movie Day™ and a passionate advocate for Black movies. Ms. Moss has an extensive background in television, public relations, journalism, and film that spans over 20 years. A native Washingtonian, many of those years have been spent producing local television segments and programs while pursuing her passion of film and entertainment journalism.

Throughout the course of her career, two things have always remained constant:

  1. Ms. Moss has always had an undying love for Black films and its ability to captivate audiences; and,
  2. She is committed to helping the next generation of Black filmmakers pursue their dreams and aspirations in the film industry.

Agnes’ personal mission is to aid persons of color in achieving more recognition and representation in the film industry. By providing scholarships, hosting events, and spearheading national campaigns, she is hopeful others will join her on the journey of recognizing the value and impact of Black films on the global community.
