Black Expat Stories

Black Expat Stories

You’re watching Black Expat Stories, a series of intimate conversations capturing the journeys of Black expats living all around the world.

My name is Courtney Bowden. I’m a writer, entrepreneur and an expat who believes the next Great Migration is underway.

I also believe the stories about these experiences need to be told by those at the vanguard of it, because the Blaxit is not a moment, but a movement.

Black Expat Stories is all about showcasing the beauty in the Blaxit.

It’s my love letter to the courageous souls who have decided to embark on a journey toward healing, freedom and belonging, and despite the sacrifices, challenges and adjustments we’ve managed to find the beauty in our Blaxit.

We're giving you a front row seat to the Black expat experience at every stage of the Blaxit - from decision to departure, and we can't wait for you to enjoy some of the most riveting stories about international living on the internet, as told by Black expats.
