This is the article that started it all.

The much-forwarded article in The Lip Magazine is where the term "Afropolitan" was first coined by Taiye Selasi.  It's an insightful look at a culture and identity that is formed by the children of first-generation African immigrants to the West. Not completely African or American/British/French they are a complex fusion.
