This Afropolitan Life is a community of Africans in America, trying to balance our American lives with our African roots. We are unapologetically proud of our heritage and bring our cultures with us wherever we find ourselves.

We accept submissions* from people who are interested in adding meaningful and helpful experiences and stories to the conversation.

We accept creative and personal stories from amateurs and professional writers alike. The goal is to catalogue a collection of stories and experiences that help us grow as Africans in the diaspora. Contribute  stories you’d share with your best buddies. Juicy ones, funny ones, deep reflections…This Afropolitan Life is about showcasing the deeper breadth of our experiences. So have fun with it, and blow us away.
