This book positions the identities that African ZmigrZs negotiate in transnational migration. It seeks to investigate the structure and modalities of the broader social contexts and parameters underpinning how these identities are constructed and rationalized. The identities African immigrants depict are transnational, resilient, enterprising, altruistic, and based upon a yearning desire for economic opportunities and total incorporation in global affairs. Their migratory identities are structured to finding solutions to ameliorate the myriad of pressing issues facing Africa
