AfroPoP: Black Public Media (BPM) is committed to bringing to the American public dynamic stories that celebrate the art, culture, history and creativity of people of African descent from the US and around the world. https://youtu.be/OAkEovmDxLQ We are looking for strong stories that will capture the breadth and scope of the diversity of the Black experiences. Programs can be about music, art, human rights, sports, politics, health, or anything in between. 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 and editorial standards. We seek primarily documentaries but will consider narrative shorts that are 30 minutes or less. Submissions are accepted year-round. For programs selected for AfroPop, Black Public Media provides competitive licensing rates for broadcast and/or digital platform distribution.
