Introducing MY IDENTITY
What is African identity?
The answer seems simple, and in fact, is too often over simplified. Given Africa’s size and diversity, plus, its chequered history and the mass displacement of its people, it becomes more difficult to answer. MY IDENTITY series features the lives of everyday people, and their stories on identity. It’s a journey with several stop-overs for self-relation, and a safe space to debate and celebrate our varying interpretations of African-ness.
For some, being African is a state of mind, whilst for others, it’s determined by the colour of our skin or connection to the continent. Either way, we all have our own individual stories to tell.
