Afropop Worldwide

Production and distribution of 10 original programs and 14 re-edited "Hip Deep" programs for the 2007-08 season and a prototype of new knowledge distribution models.

Afropop Worldwide is a weekly public radio program that since 1988 has introduced American listeners to the music and cultures of Africa and the African Diaspora. Hosted by Georges Collinet from Cameroon, the series is distributed by PRI to 99 stations in the U.S. and by XM satellite radio. Over the past four years, with support from the NEH, Afropop Worldwide has collaborated with leading humanities scholars and authors to add depth and authority to our programs. In particular, we have developed the Hip Deep series within Afropop Worldwide, a distinct set of programs that introduce humanities themes to the general public through comprehensive musical narratives. World Music Productions requests a grant of $150,000 from the NEH ton continue this work by researching, producing, and distributing 10 original programs and encoring 14 re-edited Hip Deep programs for the 2007-2008 season. This grant will also allow us to reach new audiences through new technology.
