Angela Tucker of "AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange"

Monday, January 28th

Emmy-nominated producer, writer, director Angela Tucker joined Poet on Monday to talk about "AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange."

The co-executive producer of the award-winning series of documentaries on the global black experience said her goal is to get stories out "by and about black people."

The 11th season of "AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange" highlights #MeToo and women’s struggles.

"You look at #MeToo and then you think about the way that story is covered, and you realize there's not enough of a black presence," says Tucker.

Hosted by Danielle Brooks ("Orange is the New Black"), "Mama Colonel" follows a woman in charge of a special police force handling sexual assault and violence against women and children in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

"AfroPop" season 11 premieres on Monday, January 21, at 8 p.m.
