Donald Trump recently referred to a number of African countries and other nations as ‘Shit hole countries’. Naturally, people had divided opinions. But opinions being what they are, don’t really need to be given much attention especially coming from a known bigot.
However, some have found ways to skew the conversation from Donald Trump’s ignorance and celebrate our collective diasporan excellence. Publicist and media expert Koshie Mills who recently announced the trailer for her new web show, “The Diaspora Dialogues” belongs in that category. She revealed through a Facebook post that the idea to make the show came to her after conversations with friends made it clear that platforms for discussing the similarities between Africa and it’s diaspora are important in order to bridge the culture gap.
As is seen from the trailer, “The Diaspora Dialogues” will feature Estelle, Monique Coleman, Chris Attoh, and other influential Africans. With Opera-esque intimate conversations, the goal is to discuss their history, living in foreign countries and how they’ve stayed connected to their roots.
