£10.99 Regular price

Afropean is a documentary of areas where Europeans of African descent are juggling their multiple allegiances and forging new identities.

This book takes the reader to places like Cova Da Moura, the Cape Verdean shantytown on the outskirts of Lisbon, and Rinkeby, the area of Stockholm that is eighty per cent Muslim.

Johny Pitts visits the former Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow, where West African students are still making the most of Cold War ties with the USSR, and Clichy Sous Bois in Paris, which gave birth to the 2005 riots, all the while presenting Afropeans as lead actors in their own story.
