HOW IS IT TO BE AFRO-DESCENDANT IN ITALY? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 'Being Afro-Italian has positive and negative sides. It is positive to have grown up with two cultures totally different from one another because it has given me the possibility to get a multicultural and linguistic background that not everyone can have. Furthermore, I can tell I am amongst the lucky ones that are contributing to make Italy a multiethnic nation. My generation must carry out the work of integration our parents started when they moved from Africa. Italy is a country who is knowing substantial ethnic and cultural changes only through the past 20-25 years, and this has negative consequences such as people struggling to accept these changes. Their difficulty to open their minds feeds political campaigns against ethnic minorities. Often other intern problematics trigger hate and intolerance. In my 19 years of life, I have often been subject to racism. To this day I still see in some people eyes the fear of the "one who looks different" and distrust. I am still confident that through meaningful dialogue, tolerance and understanding, little by little the situation will change positively.' . . . #TheLBD #TheLittleBlackDiary #TheLBDPortrait #afropean #afroitaliani #italia #italy #nigeria #africa #europe #newgeneration #africandiaspora #futureofeurope #words #wordsoftheday #identity #italianboy

Derrick is 19 and has a life ahead of him. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most of you probably noticed I sometimes write in Italian in my stories. That is because for five years I called Italy home and even to this day, a part of me feels very Italian. I love that country's culture, food, literature, people but when I was studying in Bologna besides always being the only African person in uni and every space I went; I was a novelty. It was very different from what I had experienced so far in France*. When I arrived in London and met Italians, their reaction was very different from their peers back home; they thought I was Afro-Italian! Though French, feeling this made me extremely happy because it showed something shifted in their mind and above all, that something was happening in Italy. I was feeling hopeful for all my brothers and sisters from the African diaspora there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Derrick contacted me after I posted a message about looking for stories of Afro-descendant in Europe and that's how he ended up sharing his story of being Afro-Italian here. Derrick's parents are Nigerian, he is from Vicenza but studies in Ferrara. I was thrilled to read him, but when I saw his picture, it put a massive smile on my face. I was very emotional because it shows a joyful boy happy to be on this earth. And I thought, here's my European African diaspora. He made me incredibly proud and hopeful (sorry if I sound like a big sister, but I am one!). His stance is both realistic and optimistic, and I love that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Read his story and let me know your thoughts! *Stories about my experience in Italy will probably come out either here or in my newsletter (so subscribe in the link in bio 😁) . . . #TheLBD #TheLittleBlackDiary #TheLBDPortrait #stories #afropean #africa #europe #nigeria #italia #italy #newgeneration #africandiaspora #futureofeurope #words #wordsoftheday #identity #italianboy #italians #italiani #afroitaliani

DO YOU FEEL ITALIAN? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 'Yes, I feel wholly Italian, and I am proud of it. I wouldn't have wanted to be born elsewhere. My parents and this country gave me everything, literally. My family and Italy gave me the possibility to grow, learn, find my calling and passion and above all, being free to express my potential. And this last thing shouldn't be taken for granted, not all boys of my age in the world have this luck.' . . . #TheLBD #TheLittleBlackDiary #TheLBDPortrait #stories #afropean #africa #europe #nigeria #italia #italy #newgeneration #africandiaspora #futureofeurope #words #wordsoftheday #identity #italianboy #italians #italiani #afroitaliani
