Nationwide -- theFstate, Makena’s Talent Agency, and The Jackson Agency have partnered to form the Black Agents Network (BAN) to provide a centralized network of Black-owned talent agencies so that talent, advertisers, producers, and studios can easily fulfill their Diversity and Inclusion pledge.

BAN will serve as a virtual directory of vetted Black-owned talent agencies thereby ensuring our entertainment community has the support it needs.

“With over 400 years of disparity and with intentional roadblocks being put in place for the detriment of BIPOC we have been successful in creating global contributions and advancements in multiple industries that benefit society as a whole. How much further along would the world be if we used the very same effort in support of BIPOC rather than a hindrance?” says Ezra Jones of theFstate.

With consistently stale growth in entertainment as it pertains to Black professionals, around 4% of key decision-makers in the content creation arena are Black. Combined with the coded language used by corporations as it pertains to finding “qualified talent pools,” it’s important now more than ever that the leaders in independent entertainment are stepping up and creating a community.

“We believe our people perish for lack of knowledge and misrepresentation. Having a visionary and being able to work with one another, is vital to our individual success. Teamwork makes the dreamwork,” says Diamond Makena of Makena’s Talent Agency.

Advertisers have issued best practices for working with Black Media Professionals, media mogul Byron Allen recently hosted a webinar through Cynopsis entitled: ‘Black-Owned Media Matters,’ and celebrities have echoed the need for support of the Black community on social media; however it seems like actionable resources have been slow to come. Not to mention, Black Talent Agency owners have been completely left out of the discussion.

“With the current state of affairs in America, it is vital that Black-owned businesses lend unequivocal support to one another. The Black Agent Network allows all BIPOC owners of their Talent Agencies to have an interactive community of support and resources for best business practices,” says Tiauna Jackson of The Jackson Agency.
