I am sharing this picture that I took in November 2020 as it signifies and means a lot for me. I took this picture of my friend Duka who adores Hip Hop dancing and wanted to expand it in Tunisia during his stay. In this image, I feel the vibe of my real identity which is ” African” with the existence of different colors that already symbolize life and multiculturism such as : Blue. I love calling myself African and I try to embrace this identity in my home country as a lot of Tunisians do not identify themselves as Africans thinking that being African equals being black. The later is wrong for sure because we are part of our mama Africa, the continent that has been inspiring us with colors, talents and astonishing stories of people who speak different languages.
I wish we reach the day when we realize how much it is important to say loudly ” We are Africans and we are proud of that” because only by then our continent reaches progress.
