REPATRIATION. . .

What is it?

What does REPATRIATION mean to [continental] African youth living in the Diaspora, especially considering the present political environment?

How feasible is repatriation?

How many are actually willing to return home?

What are some reasons why someone would not want to make the big move back to Africa?

What are some potential challenges with repatriation?

For those who have repatriated, what has their experience been like?

How can we bridge the gap between those living in the Diaspora and those on the Continent?

What type of reception would Africans back home give to those returning from the Diaspora?

And finally, for our brothers and sisters living in the States, the Caribbean, Latin America, and elsewhere across the globe, whose ancestors played an integral part in building many of these great societies that we know today — what does that mean for them to come to Africa after tracing their lineage, or adopting new cultural identities altogether — what would that experience be for them? And do they see it as necessary or important?

What does it mean for them to connect with their ancestral land, after being so far removed physically, culturally, and otherwise?

Stay tuned for more on this in the coming week.
