Is there a universal story—or truth—that African immigrants share? How do we maneuver and reconcile our multiple existences—our distinct African cultures, and languages; being black; and being immigrant? These are some of our stories—the ones that bind us together and those unique, individual narratives—of our struggles and triumphs. Africans in New York is a blog about underreported stories—writings, video, audio and photo essays—about our diverse African communities. No one can tell our stories better than us.
