Hi NBPC Family,

We have a special AfroPoP
<http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/3dd11021b7/04399e82c1/63a4bcece2/v=kxrhX4dNbzg>
episode in store for you next Monday -- not one, but two incredible films!
Tune in for our shorts program, featuring Black Out
<http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/3dd11021b7/04399e82c1/702f0ed000/v=GOwSArikm-E>
by Eva Weber and Pangaea
<http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/3dd11021b7/04399e82c1/a6e5dacab4/v=0ZGgAcV8dp8>
by Olivia Peace.

In "Black Out," hundreds of schoolchildren travel nightly to the airports,
petrol stations and wealthy parts of the Conakry, Guinea, searching for
light by which to finish their work. This evocative documentary tells the
story of these children's struggle for education in the face of their
country's own fight for change.

And in "Pangaea," experience Hurricane Katrina through the eyes of a young
girl stranded on a rooftop during the storm. This short film was produced
by a group of Northwestern University students during the course of a week
in New Orleans, Louisiana.

*"Black Out" and "Pangaea" air Monday, February 6, starting at 8:00 PM ET
on WORLD Channel
<http://cts.vresp.com/c/?NBPC/3dd11021b7/04399e82c1/dd9b2c1a92>! *
