The R and National Black Programming Consortium‘s (NBPC) AfroPoP.TV aim to make the premiere of Jarreth Merz’s An African Election a multi-platform online experience, from tweet-ups to blog posts to…podcasts! The R’s Editor/Owner Latoya Peterson interviews Frankie Edozien, who runs New York University’s Ghana “Reporting Africa” Program. They discuss the program itself, the state of Ghana’s journalism, and comparison between Ghana’s and the US’ media cultures. Check out the fascinating conversation here.
And we’re continuing to use Twitter to talk about the documentary: we’re going to live-tweet the panel discussion and the movie on October 1st. Some of the folks joining Racialicious (@racialicious) and NBPC (@BLKPublicMedia) to live-tweet it up:
- Jen Wang (Disgrasian)
- Tami Winfrey Harris (the R’s Senior Editor)
- Scot Nakagawa (ChangeLab/RaceFiles)
- David Leonard (Racialicious, NewBlackMan In Exile, Chronicle of Higher Education)
- Kenyon Farrow (Feminist Wire, AlterNet)
Join us at 8PM for the panel, and hang out with us at 8:30PM for the premiere on PBS’ WORLD channel, and don’t forget to add the hashtags #AfricanElection and #AfroPoPTV!
