Compared to ample information on why sub-Saharan African countries continue to lose their highly educated human resource to the West, very little exists on the experiences of these migrant professionals. Meaningful solutions to the issues of brain drain could be achieved if African governments and interested institutions would include an appraisal of the lived experiences of these professionals living outside the continent. This book departs from the traditional one-sided storytelling from the perspective of prognosticators on the African continent. The storytellers in this book are 10 sub-Saharan African professors who have migrated to the United States and are teaching in a predominantly White University in the Midwest. Readers would find a lucid analysis of the educational systems that produced these professors; conditions that birthed their migration; their experiences with the culture and people of the US; issues of race and racism; diversity, social justice, marginalization and double consciousness. Higher education and migration policymakers would find this book priceless. It is also a must read for African professionals contemplating migrating to the West.
