Afro-European Identity

Even in globally-centered discussions about black identity, the lives of black women living outside of the U.K. and France often remain overlooked. In this short documentary by filmmaker, photographer, and artist Naomi M., we meet Benja (Ghanaian Italian), Marianne (Belgian Cameroonian), and Vanessa (Norwegian Nigerian). The three women discuss their experiences as Europeans of African descent or were born or raised in their respective countries.
