taiye selasi :: bye-bye babar

"...the baby-Afropolitan can get what I call 'lost in transnation'"

"If nothing else, the Afropolitan knows that nothing is neatly black or white; that to 'be' anything is a matter of being sure of who you are uniquely."

"There are those among us who wonder to the point of weeping: where next, Africa? When will the scattered tribes return? When will the talent repatriate? What lifestyles await young professionals at home? How to invest in Africa's future?"

from "Bye-Bye Babar" (
