    Not really sure what to label this thread, but had one similar that explored some of the nations within the land, and which were more accommodating for building and or coexisting with distant relatives.

    Will hopefully be able to share clips, ideas, movements, organizations, etc that have and are effectively creating avenues to do so or have done so.

    Videos for consideration

    It's stories like this that make me skeptical about moving to Africa . . .

    Mamelena Diop, born Jeannette Salters, was a Detroit activist in the 1970s who eventually moved to Ghana as part of her exploration of her roots. The Detroit Free Press is reporting that she was killed in that West African country. Her body, along with that of her sister, Nzinga Janna, was found last week near their home. It is believed that the double killings may have been the result of an argument over land.

    Diop, 75, who was active in black nationalist and feminist movements, helped lead the Detroit chapter of the National Black Feminist Organization, the Free Press notes. Her activism ultimately prompted her to uncover her West African heritage, and she eventually moved to Ghana and changed her name as part of a movement by Detroit residents who went about reclaiming their roots, according to the news site.

    Just something to think about because not all ex-pats experiences have a happy ending.
