One cold afternoon in October, Founder and co-editor of Afropean.com Johny Pitts left London on the Eurostar to travel Europe by train for five months in search of 'Afropea'- those parts of the continent where second, third and fourth generation members of the black-diaspora in Europe are forging identities not represented in tourist literature and traditional national narratives. Johny will talk about what he found on his travels in London, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Moscow, Berlin, Rome, Madrid and Lisbon and share some of his street photography due to be released as a book in 2016.
