Being Black Abroad: All About Taking Your Education Worldwide
David Thomas: Howard University, London 2009, China and Japan 2012, and Ghana 2014.
The Good: "Count your blessings, not your problems.[...] I have learned to be thankful for what I have, because there are people around the world who literally kill eachother to have just a portion of what I have."
The Bad:"[In Ghana] the most disturbing thing that I overheard was how the African people did not consider me as "Black." I was constantly referred to as "the white man" or a "sellout." How could I be referred to as their "American brother" when they begged me for money, yet be considered less than Black because I grew up in the United States?" (Photo: Courtesy of David Thomas)
