Gabourey Sidibe became known for her starring role in “Precious,” a film that was produced, written and directed by African Americans. So it’s fair to say she knows a little something about art and culture from the black perspective.  That must be why producers of the public television show “AfroPop: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange” tapped the actress, whose father is from Senegal, to host Season 5 of the show.  “Afropop” debuted this Tuesday and will continue Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. ET through February 5th. (Encore broadcasts air at midnight.)
