I created this group for people who have lived somewhere in Africa at some point in their lives.
In order to foster social connections that promote;

  • tolerance and understanding through friendships with people from other parts of Africa
  • shared language
  • moral/cultural support to other Africans in need

If this fits you, welcome to the group and your new connections.

What we do
The connections in the group are instantaneous because we have one major thing in common. 
We are Africans. Whether we were born there, or our individual paths took us there.

We often socialize "off the books".  We eat (too much), drink (too little), dance (joyfully), debate, take road trips, BBQ, ski (poorly), bowl, hike, check out the latest African themed exhibits, and record blackmail videos of members doing karaoke... 
However the mood strikes. 

Expectations / RSVP / Attendance Proclaimer
If you RSVP "YES", I expect you to be there. 
Lack of manners in this respect, or any other display of gross lack of manners, will likely lead to your eviction from the group.

We're 131 Africans

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
