Resources: Copenhagen’s African American Community

In Copenhagen, there is a growing population of Africans. As an African American, you may be mistaken for being African. However, once you communicate the distinction, you will often first be perceived as an American and then as a person who is black. This could be a contrast to the way you are received in the U.S., given the role of race relations in American society.

While the African American community is small, access it by creating a network for yourself. Resources for Copenhagen’s African American Community:

Resources: Copenhagen’s Latinx Community
