Black stars and filmmakers converged on the Harlem Stage Gatehouse on February 9 ,2018 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the acclaimed series AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange.

The event featured a screening of the documentary program’s season finale, Fatal Assistance, award-winning director Raoul Peck’s sobering indictment of the global aid policies that failed Haiti in the aftermath of the devastating 2010 earthquake.

The evening was hosted by actor Nicholas L. Ashe, star of the hit OWN Network series Queen Sugar and host of this season of AfroPoP, and featured a post-screening discussion led by award-winning journalist Maria Hinojosa with Hébert Peck, producer of Fatal Assistance.

Produced by Black Public Media and co-presented by distributor American Public Television (APT), AfroPoP remains the only public television series dedicated to presenting documentary films about the global Black experience.
