Black Interiors: Creating a Home in a Foreign Land

Creating a Home in a Foreign Land

While the reasons differed, many African Americans desired to permanently relocate to African countries during the 19th and 20th century. At the same time, many from Africa chose to come to Europe and America to pursue higher educational opportunities not available in their homelands, and many to this day simply travel for leisure or to explore countries outside our own. These resources highlight Pan-Africanism, the ideology that spurred many to relocate to countries in Africa, as well as current study abroad opportunities for AUC students.
