Children of Immigrants Describe the Struggles of AfroItalian Identity in 'Passeggiando'

In the latest edition of Cecile Emeke's interview series, Strolling, she follows Bellamy and Loretta in Milan as they discuss the trials of being children of African immigrants in Italy. Bellamy explains, "They do everything to delay the acceptance of me being Italian."

The women reflect on the sacrifices their parents made and the family pressures that result. As always, Cecile Emeke's work highlights the particularities of these women's experience while emphasizing that many struggles are universal. Their discussion on the pressure to become a mother is particularly familiar.

Watch as the women delve into a critical conversation.
