In the matter of personal experience, I am qualified to write about Africa a about America as well. In me, the phrase qAfrican-Americanq is alive with vivid experiences. I have spent equal halves of my eventful life in Africa a in the USA. I have citizenship in both worlds a have been uniquely impacted by both through bouts of traumatic experiences.
