Episode 8: Chiponda Chimbelu - "Afropolitan."
Very recently, Chiponda Chimbelu was featured on The Black Expat. Chiponda, who is a Berlin-based journalist, shared his experiences about the multiple identities he holds as a Zambian, an American, Black man, gay man living in Europe. As you can imagine there was a lot to unpack and we didn’t get it all. So he’s back.
In this episode, we decided to take a closer look at everything we just couldn’t get to in the first time. We talk the concept of European identity, the idea of global citizenship, being a Black journalist in white media spaces, the racial dynamics of African passports. And that’s just for starters.
Below are some excerpts from Amanda’s conversation with Chiponda.
