AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange

Hosted by film, television, and stage actor Anthony Mackie, season six of AfroPoP brings to viewers five compelling documentaries on contemporary African Diaspora. From the basketball courts in New York City's parks to a United Nations "special court" in Freetown, Sierra Leone, these five stories capture, examine and share the lives of individuals and communities from around the world.

AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange (Season 7)

The seventh season continues the fine production quality and provocative filmmaking technique of its previous six seasons. A highly successful series with public television stations nationwide, AfroPoP brings to the American public a veritable mix of independent documentary stories about the African American and African Diaspora cultural experience. Hosted by actress and model Yaya DaCosta (Ugly Betty, Whitney), the five films this season - The Carrier (Zambia), Ladies’ Turn (Senegal), Sound of Torture (Eritrea), The Triptych, and The Abominable Crime (Jamaica) - are powerful, inspirational, gripping, artistic, and triumphant.
