Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Quite.

I've notice there is no commentary to this diary addresses singular political events that propelled Afro-European migrations

Declarations of independence 1947 - 1968. 1960, in particular

See Franz Fanon, Black Skin, White Masks (1952) concerning people who "speak French properly".

Uncanny.

There you leave me behind: colonial history is not my strong suit      and I'm not really good with nationalism (in whatever form) either.

It's complicated, Fanon wrote in part from his training in psychiatry, in part from his memory of immigration to France from Antigua.

See? You have material for any number of diaries, most of which would stand on their own so you can just write one now :-)

Now seriously, I suspect black politics is a big blind spot for most of us here. It certainly is for me. We don't have to wait for Black History Month to have black history diaries.

Please?
