2018 Afropop’s 30th Anniversary Gala is now, and it’s time to celebrate! Afropop galas unfailingly thrill attendees with dazzling entertainment and social interaction you won’t find anywhere else. Afropop Worldwide is the Peabody Award-winning nonprofit public radio series (hosted by Georges Collinet), podcast and website (afropop.org). Afropop’s mission is to reveal the essential music and stories of Africa and the African diaspora, celebrating the roots of the world’s greatest pop music traditions.

This year’s event is no exception, culminating in performances by two new Afropop Hall of Fame honorees: Garifuna global ambassador Aurelio Martinez, and Zimbabwe’s international sensation, Mokoomba. This, our most ambitious gala ever, will provide a unique opportunity to connect with old and new friends, and with cutting-edge innovators in the arts, media, business, philanthropy and the continuing fight for social justice around the globe. We’re thrilled to announce that Harry Belafonte is our Honorary Gala Chair. This will be the best party you’ll attend all year!
