It’s cliché for political candidates to describe small businesses as "the backbone of our economy,” one that often omits the stories and experiences of African Americans. An effort to right the historical record, Boss is a visionary documentary (produced by MFF multi-alum Stanley Nelson) about Black innovation, entrepreneurship, and perseverance in an economy determined to exclude them.


"This documentary should not just serve as a tribute-it should light a fire under us to rebuild and support each other. Don't watch it for appreciation. Watch it for inspiration." - Black Girl Nerds
