AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange has delighted audiences for 12 seasons. Its stories are as beautiful as they are poignantly told. Black Public Media (BPM) is committed to bringing to the American public dynamic stories that celebrate the art, culture, and creativity of people of African descent.

We are looking for strong stories that will capture the breadth and scope of the diversity of experiences of contemporary African peoples. Programs can be about music, art, human rights, sports, politics, health, or anything in between.  They can be set on the African continent, the US, Caribbean, South America, Europe, Middle East, South Pacific, Asia, or wherever people of African descent have made an impact. 

Programs should be accessible to a broad audience, have the potential for a national broadcast, and can be used for effective outreach and engagement activities to reach audiences beyond the public television broadcast. Completed programs must be able to meet PBS technical standards. We seek primarily documentaries but will consider narrative shorts less than 30 minutes. 

AfroPoP airs on WORLD Channel and is distributed by American Public Television.

AfroPoP programs are considered year-round.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
