AfroPoP has returned for a tenth season —and this time it’s being hosted by actor, Nicholas L. Ashe.
Falling in line with the WORLD Channel’s other insightful programming, AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange tells various narratives of the Black experience throughout the African diaspora.
“As we celebrate ten years of AfroPoP, Season 10’s films remind us not enough has changed for people of African descent globally,” Kay Shaw, the Black Public Media (BPM) Director of Programs and Acquisitions and AfroPoP Executive Producer said.
“Immigration is still a challenge, inequitable treatment of women of color is still an issue, and inequitable distribution of resources is just as pervasive —even when the need is great and resources are available. BPM is committed to continuing to bring to the American public these stories and others that celebrate the art, culture and creativity people of African descent for another ten years.”
In addition to starring in Ava DuVernay’s Queen Sugar, Ashe is a vocalist, pianist and composer with a scholarship for young artists in his hometown of Freeport, Long Island.
The WORLD Channel’s AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. ET.
