"In the United States, as a Black person, you never really feel at home. You're always feeling like you're under pressure. You're under so much stress by the police officers, by all the authority figures, you never feel comfortable. You never are free to just roam about without someone treating you disrespectfully, or treating you like a criminal, or like you're not even a person. I feel very good coming to Africa, even though with all of its quirks and inconveniences, it's still home." - Mimi Igyan
