Afropop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange

American Ascent

Season 9, Episode 1 of 5

An American Ascent is a feature documentary about the first African American expedition to tackle North America's highest peak, Denali. In June 2013, nine African Americans set out to build a legacy and become role models for inner city kids and people of color all over America to encourage them to get outside. They did so by taking on the grueling, 20,237 foot peak of the continent's biggest mountain.
