The stories of Nigerian musician Fela Keti and drummer Tony Allen, and the genre Afrobeat.
Black History Month
Black history is American history every day of the year. But too often and for too long, our history books have told us an incomplete story about America.
February is a time to renew our collective commitment to lifting up the stories of Black movement makers and culture creators that shape our world like Firelight Media co-founder, and award-winning filmmaker, Stanley Nelson. Throughout the month, WORLD Channel will present a selection of Firelight films and a showcase of over 45 programs including premieres from AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange, Finding Your Roots, Independent Lens, and WORLD exclusive series America ReFramed and Local, USA.
WORLD Channel invites you to watch and discuss the films and the issues during Black History Month using the social activity guide and on social using the hashtag #WORLDxBHM.
