At Home! Abroad

by Rita Muhammad

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Having lived for two years in West Africa and two years in Mainland China, this book is my honest assessment of various situations in my life and travels which were happy, sad, angry, confusing, enlightening, spiritual, awesome, amazing and educational, that I encountered while traveling throughout various regions in Ghana, West Africa. “At Home – Abroad” discusses racism and race relations in America and internationally; sexism, male/female relationships, and even polygamy. Hopefully, I will inspire Black men and women to reconnect with Africa and travel or live for extended periods of time in the Motherland.
Description
Having lived for two years in West Africa and two years in Mainland China, this book is my honest assessment of various situations in my life and travels which were happy, sad, angry, confusing, enlightening, spiritual, awesome, amazing and educational, that I encountered while traveling throughout various regions in Ghana, West Africa. My book talks about the economic opportunities available in Africa. I share my networking experiences between African youth and their peers in America. As a single, Muslim, Black woman from America, traveling throughout Africa alone, I am presented with a different picture and different experiences than most non-Black people. Depending on where I travel, I am accepted and perceived differently, as well. As I traveled throughout China I thought, every Chinese American needs to experience this country. Likewise with Africa. African Americans needs to come and bring their children and grandchildren to the Continent. It is so much more than big belly babies and poverty. It is truly something to behold! I hope after reading "At Home! Abroad", you will make arrangements for your own life-altering travel throughout the Motherland.
