A couple of decades ago I visited a place in eastern Europe where I felt like a curious attraction. The attention was not hostile, and people were mostly kind but they could not hide their surprise, and wondering eyes followed me everywhere, accompanied sometimes with honking cars on the street. I wonder if nowadays it would be the same. I hope not, with social media and the world being much more connected. This is why visibility matters, the more black people are seen around the world, in the remotest corners, the more likely we are to be comfortable and feel “normal” wherever we go.
