Welcome to Neo African Diaspora

We are an interactive multi-media forum focused on empowering African immigrants in the US and beyond. Through our blogs and podcast series, we examine the factors and trends affecting the well-being of African immigrants. We invite you to journey with us as we explore issues related to transnationalism and integration among African immigrant communities. 

In addition to putting out informative, thought-provoking, and entertaining content, we welcome contributions from everyone who has a keen interest in appreciating African immigrants. Whether you are an African immigrant or a researcher, policy maker, community leader, or entrepreneur seeking to engage with African immigrants, we are excited to learn and grow with you as we explore the amazing journeys of African immigrants in the US and beyond.

Support the African Immigrant Month Petition

As part of our quest to celebrate and empower African immigrants, Neo African Diaspora is spearheading a campaign to revive a bill that was introduced in the US Congress by Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY) in 2015-2016 to have the month of September designated by law as “African Immigrant Heritage Month” in the United States of America. Click here to view the petition.
