The Black Media Owners Association or “BMOA” is a South African voluntary organization made to organize, unite and represent the collective force of the press and media power of black people in South Africa (also referred to as Africans).
The need for the Black Media Owners Association comes from a group of motivated media owners that organized themselves to create an organization that serves their collective interests as black people in South Africa. Another important reason is the lack of representation and recognition of black-owned media, which has resulted in minimal support for the sector and its development.
