Donate to the Afropop Worldwide 2023 Spring Fund

Afropop Worldwide is the Peabody Award-winning, weekly, one-hour public radio program and website that introduces listeners to the musical cultures of Africa and the African diaspora. Produced by World Music Productions in Brooklyn since 1988, and hosted by Cameroonian-born, Washington, DC-based, broadcasting veteran Georges Collinet, the weekly one-hour radio series is distributed by Public Radio Exchange (PRX) to over 100 stations in the U.S., and the programs are also available via podcast and streaming at Public radio program directors continually tell us that no other American media source tells the story of Africa and the African diaspora with such depth of research, range of reporting, and consistent entertainment value.

2023 marks Afropop Worldwide’s 35th year of presenting music and stories from Africa and the African diaspora on public radio. This achievement makes us one of the longest-running music programs in the history of public radio, and a force on the Internet and social media.

Your matching donation will allow us to continue our unique, award-winning work. A couple of pointers to inspire you:

  • We still have lots of material from our Tanzania trip to post, enough to feed our website with wonderful sights and sounds well into the summer.

  • Looking ahead, later this year, we plan to launch a new, live podcast, hosted by Georges Collinet, Mukwae Wabei Siyolwe and Banning Eyre. This offering will include live conversation among the hosts, artist interview segments, and lots and lots of current music, far more than can be covered in our radio format. We’re super excited about this new offering, and your gift now will help us get it rolling!

A generous donor is matching all gifts up to $25,000. Your matching gift will help us reach or even exceed our goal. No dollar ever goes to waste at Afropop Worldwide.
