In addition to providing an interactive platform to realize a connected and empowered global African community, Ezibota will also be introducing a series of new columns for our members and visitors to read, ponder, and discuss. The first of our columns is titled “Come and Go: Immigration Issues,” a column dedicated to exploring issues in black immigration on a global scale.
The purpose of this column is to create a space where we can examine the African immigrant in a global, shifting world; to explore the different issues that African immigrants face whether they are documented or undocumented. This column will address immigrant rights, movement building, and solidarity amongst various immigrant groups.
The author behind this column, Alfresco Ruwe, is originally from Zambia and currently resides in Austin, Texas in pursuit of his Master’s degree in Philosophy. Join Alfresco and guest contributors on our platform for monthly discussion focusing on black immigration and the various realities African immigrants face on a daily basis, throughout the world.
