Johny Pitts: Afropean: Notes from Black Europe

TV presenter, photographer and writer, Johny Pitts, sets out to explore “black Europe from the street up” in his new book, Afropean: Notes from Black Europe. Dissatisfied with the limits imposed on his identity and the framing of his black experience, Johny is a nomadic writer in search of his tribe. He claims membership of a collective black community in Europe that offers a sense of belonging more nourishing than the reductive nationalism of individual European countries. But what is it to be Afropean?

Fascinating, urgent and stirring. His humility and honesty are wonderfully refreshing and by the end of the book our perception of the old continent has been challenged and reimagined. Bernardine Evaristo.
