Nearly 1 in 4 Africans have considered leaving the shores of the continent every year. Against the backdrop of political tensions, insecurity in different climes, civil conflict, low educational levels and rife poverty, Africans make the choice to migrate and seek a better future for their children. However, this decision is not without challenges in the immigration process and even settling down in the host countries. Africans reaching their destination lose a sense of community that was previously available in their home countries. Undertones of racism in their workplace, racist slurs, difficulty in integrating into their society are some of the challenges immigrants must overcome.
The Immigrant’s Quest, written by Abolaji Alabi and published in 2021 nullifies the danger of a single story perpetrated by media about African immigrants who are treated with disdain and disrespect in a new country. It attempts to show a humane angle to the immigrants’ hopes and experiences. It is available in paperback on Amazon and on Kindle.
