In this issue we discuss African philosophy, cultural ideology, identity, and immigration. We launched our new Becoming Series, which unearths the essence of two incredibly resilient young women, Clemantine Wamariya, former refugee and Oprah Show guest, and Michaela DePrince, ballet phenom. We also have another insightful entry in our popular Afropolitan Diary series, plus a Start-Up Stories feature on online Nigerian food market, From business to travel and art, this issue is filled with stories that inspire, inform, and entertain.
