Academy AwardŽ-nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe (Precious, Tower Heist, The Big C) steps into a new role as host of AFROPOP: THE ULTIMATE CULTURAL EXCHANGE, an innovative documentary series highlighting contemporary life, art and pop culture in the African Diaspora. In the fifth season of AfroPoP, two independent films take viewers on a journey into human and women’s rights struggles across the world. "Dear Mandela" captures the demonstrations of residents of the Durban shantytowns as they fight for the decent living conditions promised by the post-apartheid government and challenge the African National Congress (ANC). "A Lot Like You" follows a half-Korean, half-Tanzanian sexual-abuse survivor as she explores her African roots, and learns about the sexual violence faced by her aunts and other women in the Chagga culture. In her role as host, Sidibe frames each episode’s content, adding her personal concerns about the issues portrayed.
