The Black Music Action Coalition exists to eradicate racism within the music business and broader society.
BMAC was formed to address systemic racism within the music business, advocating on behalf of Black artists, songwriters, producers, managers, agents, executives, lawyers, and other passionate industry professionals.
The Black Music Action Coalition (BMAC) formed in alliance with #TheShowMustBePaused. They organize and disseminate key information through their network of 200+ initial members to influence culture on matters of racial justice and equity through policy, philanthropy, and voter education.
Any artist, songwriter, producer, manager, agent, lawyer, executive, or other passionate industry professional can join the Coalition. BMAC is run by an Executive Board currently represented by Ashaunna Ayars, Caron Veazey, Courtney Stewart, Damien Smith, Jamil Davis, Willie “Prophet” Stiggers, and Shawn “Tubby” Holiday.
BMAC is advised by an Advisory Board consisting of Clarence Avant, Irving Azoff & Quincy Jones.
