Who We Are

Diasporic Soul is a “yes, yes y’all” to members of the African Diaspora from us, two members of the African Diaspora who found one another and had the audacity to fall in love in spite of our cultural differences.  We love each other.  And, we love Black people. Our soul. Our swagger. Our sabor. Our joie de vivre. Our creativity and ingenuity.  Our differences and diversity.  Our spirit of resilience and resistance.

Thus, we created Diasporic Soul.

What We Do:

Diasporic Soul curates short-term study abroad and travel experiences in Senegal, West Africa that foster greater inter-cultural understanding, leadership development and personal growth.

While our doors are open to all, we are especially invested in holding space for and serving youth and students from diverse backgrounds as well as social justice organizers and activists, artists and cultural workers, youth workers and educators, and helpers and healers.

Diasporic Soul provides lodging and retreat space for our visitors at the Tangor Guest House and we provide casual dining for our guests and members of the community at the Tangor Café, which are both are located in Sebikhotane, Dakar, Senegal.  Our five-acre farm is also incorporated into the experiences we design for our guests.
