What is it like to live in Europe with an African identity?

As an African migrant you will have to find a way to deal with European culture. Sometimes, your own habits perfectly match local customs. But sometimes you are not accepted simply because you were not born in Europe.

Wonda Wendy, a French-Gabonese singer, believes Europeans can learn from Africans; Moussé from Senegal and his Dutch wife explain how black and white relationships work in Europe; and Aba Bantu explores instances of racist violence against Africans in Germany.

 

Surprising Europe can be seen each week at the following times GMT: Monday: 2230; Tuesday: 0930; Wednesday: 0330; Thursday: 1630.
