In 2015 after an unsuccessful collaboration project, Mystical Poets Productions explored increasing media awareness in the African Diaspora community in the DC Metropolitan area.
In 2016, 6 topics of focus in the African Community were selected and produced giving coverage to various events in the African Community. The series was cable-cast in the DC metropolitan area, airing on 4 public and government access cable channels.
In 2017, a digital resource hub focused on local resources and local media was created.
Today, the African Community Forum is a resource guide for residents in the DC metropolitan area with a focus of informing and engaging the community while bridging the gap between organizations, governments, and individuals.
