As Diasporan Africans living in America, we represent a strong and determined contingent of what has built the world in which we currently live. We are constantly thinking of ways that we can change the misleading and damaging narrative that comes with the stigma people hold of Africa.

Africa is so much more than war, or poverty, or disease. Africa is rich. Africa is vibrant. Africa is beautiful. And Africa is us.
