11. What makes Nommo unique? What we bring to the table is a collective 50 years of exposure and experience in the business of content creation and delivery and of honoring Diversity. We are hyper-aware of the need to ask and answer the question: “What does the audience need?” And some of that education comes from institutions like Howard University, which has produced a long list of trailblazers in all fields of endeavor. Some of that education comes from the many places we have worked including Black Entertainment Television in its early days. Back then, we knew we were part of a change movement to identify and serve a much underserved community.
We see the big picture but we are also able to drill down to minor details. We have taken this experience into the present. And whether it’s African-American Rose Harper who has had a series of firsts in the Golf industry; or Haitian Raoul Peck who is president of France’s version of the American Film Institute; or Black film students like Charles Burnett and Haile Gerima who launched the LA Rebellion Filmmaker movement, we find people of color who are making an impact with diverse audiences world-wide.
12. How does Nommo choose its speakers? Nommo’s focus is on the speakers who may not be mainstream but nevertheless are change agents. We are constantly reading to keep abreast of the trends and to see how people are problem solving. But we also get on the ground to see how these experts interact with their audience. Our speakers may be visual artists, literary activists, scientists, political and social watchdogs, filmmakers and so on. They may use the classroom, the community center, the church or the conference to call attention to larger problems and provide creative solutions. We have made it our goal to identify empowering speakers and share them with a larger audience.
