Digital marketer Muhammida el-Muhajir moved from New York City to Ghana to escape America's "incessant racism and prejudice" and thousands of others are doing the same, Al Jazeera reports.
From Al Jazeera:
Accra, Ghana - They have come from the big cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Thousands of them. And many refuse to return.el-Muhajir told Al Jazeera why she decided to make the move:
"I grew up in Philadelphia and then New York. I went to Howard, which is a historically black university. I tell people that Ghana is like Howard in real life. It felt like a microcosm of the world. At university, they tell us the world isn't black, but there are places where this is the real world. Howard prepares you for a world where black people are in charge, which is a completely different experience compared to people who have gone to predominantly white universities."
"The first country I went to was Kenya. I was 15 and travelled with a group of kids. I was one of two black kids. I saw early that I could fit in and wasn't an outsider. Suddenly it switched, I came from America where I was an outsider, but in Africa, I no longer felt like that. I did graduate school in Ghana in 2003 and went back to New York and then moved to Ghana in 2014.el-Muhajir also produced a documentary called "Blaxit," a play on Brexit meaning "black exit," chronicling the stories of others who've made the leap:
"In my documentary, I chose five people that I've met since I've been here and every one of them went to a black college in the US. It's something that prepares you mentally to realise you aren't a second-class citizen. Something like that can help you make a transition to live in Africa."Follow InformationLiberation on Twitter, Facebook and Gab.
