Colorado Africans in the News

This page is about Col­orado Africans in the News. The African com­mu­ni­ty in the state of Col­orado is an impor­tant part of the state’s elec­torate. More than ever before their voice is sought by the state’s lead­ers on impor­tant socio-polit­i­cal matters. 

Africans in the Diaspora

For almost two decades, Africa Agen­da has worked tire­less­ly to demys­ti­fy what excites Africans in the dias­po­ra. In addi­tion to dozens of resources we have on this web­site and our sis­ter web­site,  Africa Agen­da, we spe­cial­ize in track­ing and sort­ing out the news about the glob­al African com­mu­ni­ty, but also Colorado’s African com­mu­ni­ty in the News.

From immi­gra­tion into Amer­i­ca to the pol­i­tics of edu­ca­tion, the glob­al African com­mu­ni­ty, whether liv­ing in Col­orado, in oth­er parts of Amer­i­ca, or in Europe, have a sto­ry to tell.

Many sto­ries about Africans in the dias­po­ra, many of them in Amer­i­ca, are often ignored by Amer­i­can news media. In the case where these sto­ries are ignored by Amer­i­can news media, we will bring them to your atten­tion, by what­ev­er means pos­si­ble, and to the best of our ability.
