What BlackExpat.com readers are saying about us:
Another excellent article. This piece was very refreshing. I am so thrilled to see black American women like Wandi who are progressive and forward thinking enough to act on pursuing their dreams. I also appreciate her respect for the people and effort she puts in fitting in to her environment. It has definitely helped her to assimilate. Thanks for this interview.
I recently discovered your publication…loving it!
I am in the process of applying for ESL opportunities in Asia, and was so inspired by this month’s issue which features several expats who seem to be enoying the continent; adjusting quite well to their chosen Asian country.
The history of Blacks in Asia has yet to be told, and this article is certainly one of the best. While in Asia, I saw ancient artifacts of people that were most definitely Black–flat noses, curly hair (not snails!) and all. Most of those artifacts are not shown in Western museums. Period. Keep up the good work!
I am a 26 year old African American female and you don’t understand how wonderful and encouraging reading this article has been for me. I can completely identify with everything Elimisha said about never feeling like I belong in America. I also experienced the same feelings of “home” and “at ease” when I visited the nation of Barbados for the first time as an adult, where my mother’s family hails from.
I particularly found your story about working for the NGO to be interesting. My friends and I often feel frustrated because we do not want to work for the “establishment” in Africa, and encounter the same issues that we do in the U.S corporate world. Sometimes it does seem like White America has the non-profit industry under control, and that the only “in”, is through them. But I REFUSE to accept this! This serves as more reason to work to start our own establishments!
The financial figures that you placed at the bottom were extremely helpful as well. Thank you and I hope to meet you one day in Africa!
