Africa: defining the African Diaspora

A thought-provoking piece at Black Looks on defining the African Diaspora, “Then there is the latter group, whose relationship, I am finding, is astonishingly schizophrenic. I talk here of a specific class of Africans living abroad. The educated ones who on the surface are proponents of a “pro-Africa” sort of image. We are the ones who want the world to know that Africa is not one country, that there’s more to it than you see on National Geographic etc. I think it’s fashionable in certain circles.”
