i, too, am america

The writer Alain Mabackou was born in the Congo, with the capital city Brazzaville. The city was named after explorer Brazza. The country is Francophone. Alain went for further studies to France, another Francophone country. Now he has moved to an Anglophone country: i.e. United States of America. He writes about his experiences about life in these States and how he relates to his fellow Afrophones.
