African community Philadelphia


The United States is a country of immigrants. Whether in search of opportunities or personal freedoms, whether to start a business or to flee a civil war, people immigrate to create new lives for themselves and their families. 

The immigrants who have chosen to stay in the Philadelphia region have not only started anew for themselves, they have also imbued cultural richness into our society. Every immigrant carries with him a unique experience and history.
