Nommo Speaker’s Bureau is an African American woman-owned booking agency for speakers and experts of color. Focusing on collaboration and innovation in and between communities, the bureau has chosen thought leaders, scholars and creatives who have the ability to see the global and local perspectives; create intellectual capital; welcome and nurture diversity; and, facilitate empowering experiences and growth.
In 2000, Nommo began as a booking agency for black filmmakers under the name Blackfilmmakers.net. Its purpose was to serve Black independent filmmakers whose impactful work was outside the mainstream and rarely seen by mass audiences. Now, Nommo has expanded its black speakers offering and client base to better serve the communities and institutions wanting to learn and be inspired by these unsung change makers.

Most importantly, our team is excited to be stereotype busters and to share Nommo’s treasure trove of speakers with a wider audience. Nommo brings a wealth of knowledge, insight and passion to generating opportunities for clients and speakers. This boutique agency is focused on expanding and diversifying the marketplace.
