Wait! Wondering what that even is? Don’t worry you are not the only one.

1 In fact, you are a product of it whether you’re a user of its resources or you consider yourself from the African Diaspora.

2 Reality Check: 85 percent of the world’s resources come from Africa, so imagine the world with out Africa’s rich minerals and cultural influences from its foods to its customs.

3 Diaspora means the dispersion of indigenous peoples, and African Diaspora is the dispersion of African people across the globe through many years and still to this day.

4 Examples of Places brought up by the dispersal of African peoples would be: The Caribbean, United States and Brazil just to name a few.

The main lesson to take away from this is that knowing yourself is an important asset in your life, and being proud of who you are is even more important.
