Skip navigation! Johny Pitts was born into a working class home in Sheffield at the same time Maggie Thatcher was in Number He is the son of an African American father and a white English mother. As he writes in the prologue of Afropean: Notes from Black Europe , it was a time when "the older generation of black Northerners, who had to survive in smaller enclaves of otherness than their London counterparts" were "attempting to ingratiate and integrate themselves into their homeland. In Afropean, Pitts s ets out from his hometown to explore the state of black culture and identity in Europe today. Starting on the streets, he meets Europeans of African descent who are negotiating their own allegiances, visiting communities such as the Cape Verdean favela on the outskirts of Lisbon, the west African students at the former Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow and political activists in the Parisian suburb of Clichy-sous-Bois. The book is a natural progression from Afropean. Pitts is a writer, broadcaster and photographer, and in October he organised the Looking B l ack Symposium at the Bozar cultural centre in Brussels — a weekend of talks and performances dedicated to the notion of black travel. Interspersed within Afropean are original portraits of Pitts' subjects. Shot in black and white, they document the everyday black experience: workers commuting, a woman waiting at a bus stop, a couple having a chat over coffee.
