Jemele Hill on Why Black Americans Don’t Move Back to Africa (Part 3)

In the latest clip, Jemele Hill discussed the idea of African Americans leaving the United States for Africa. She said, due to slavery, some African American don’t feel a connection to Africa and have misconceptions about what life in Africa is actually like. Hill also cited people living in America their whole life and buying into the idea that the United States is the greatest country as reasons why more Blacks haven’t left the country. Referencing her own experiences in the continent, Hill said she and others felt an immediate connection in Africa. She also said she wouldn’t be surprised if more African Americans start living abroad if America’s issues with race don’t improve.
