This ebook argues new cadre of African immigrants are discovering themselves within the New World—mostly good knowledgeable, high-income incomes pros, and belonging to the class termed "African mind drain," they represent the antinomy of these Africans who have been forcibly faraway from Africa in the course of slavery. in addition to this feeling of freedom and voluntary migration comes a paradox—that of residing in worlds and negotiating the pleasures and agonies that include residing in exile. For the recent African immigrant, the first issue motivating migration is the will for a greater existence even if fleeing political persecution, financial hindrance, refugee main issue, or a mixture thereof. the final outcomes contain displacement, alienation, and the no longer so enthralling truth of exile. In its encompassing constitution and multivalent views, Trans-Atlantic Migration sets in movement the moving theoretical and pragmatic verity that the recent African diaspora and transatlantic migrations are paths encumbered with paradoxes that simply time, negotiations, compromises, and experience of identities can finally get to the bottom of.
