I’ve been in Sydney for a while now and I’ve never seen so many Africans in one place as I did at the event I attended this weekend. It was all very exciting to me.
The first few months, I wondered where the Africans were. Did they refuse to come to Australia because it’s too damn far like everyone keeps complaining about?
I'd keep my eyes peeled for any sign of ebony in a bus or while walking on the street. Seeing one was a big deal. I learned to look them straight in the eye, smile and nod in silent greeting. As if to say “I see you fellow African. Peace be unto you.”
