Thank you for this article. I think it re-emphasized the need to understand first before seeking to be understood. As an immigrant with children born in the USA, I see their struggle to fit into the African American culture and still live up to the Nigerian expectations which in some cases seem to be at variance with their reality. Luckily they do have it easier than you did. DNA tests and return to Africa tours, year of return to Ghana etc has sparked some interest among their classmates. Some are now openly contemplating trips to West Africa. Enjoy your stay in Nigeria; hope you are not "totally spoilt " before you get back to the USA :)
