NAMAC Features NBPC’s Fields-Cruz

Last month, the National Alliance for Media Art + Culture (NAMAC) profiled National Black Programming Consortium’s (NBPC) Leslie Fields-Cruz as its “featured leader.” In a Q&A posted on NAMAC’s site, Fields-Cruz discusses what drew her to public media and eloquently reveals how she remains engaged and inspired with her work.

As Vice President of Operations and Programming, Fields-Cruz manages NBPC’s Production Media Fund and supervises the distribution of NBPC funded programs to PBS. She also oversees the popular NBPC series “AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange.”

(Note: NAMAC’s previous “featured leaders” include Shirley Sneve, executive director of Native American Public Telecommunications and Justine Nagan, executive director of Kartemquin Films.)

NBPC has a busy week ahead. On Friday, March 11 Kay Shaw, director of NBPC’s Public Media Corps (PMC), moderates a session at the Integrated Media Association Conference that explores different models for community partnerships. Then, on Saturday, March 12 NBPC Executive Director Jacquie Jones participates in “Open Wide: New Models for Public Media” at the South by Southwest Festival.
