Black Europe; A Travelogue in Words & Images
Welcome to Afropean.com – A website exploring the interplay of Black & European culture. I traveled the continent for five months with the aim of writing a non-fiction travel narrative about my experiences and putting together a photo-essay to go with it. If you’re reading this, I made it! Currently editing over 200’000 words and over 10’000 images. On this page you’ll be able to get a preview of what I found…Some stuff that might be in the book as well as things that haven’t made the cut but are hopefully still of interest. It was a journey that brought me in contact with Egyptian hobos, Portuguese favelas, racist football hooligans, Black Panthers, German anarchists, Russian Nazis and Black French militants, as I rattled around Europe on trains searching for a different side of the continent and answers about my own mixed-race identity.
Hope you enjoy traveling with me,
