Racism against Africans in India

Liminal Spaces

Sporadic but virulent racial attacks on African nationals in public spaces contradict the ongoing metanarratives of ascendant India-Africa political and economic relations. This article affirms that the Indian people at large and the Government of India have remained steadfast in their condemnation of such xenophobic attacks. Increased people-to-people interactions through the arts, education, state media, and shared cultural festivals will promote greater intercultural understanding and buttress the long-standing Afrasian connections.
