Afropean announces the arrival of an impassioned author able to deftly navigate and illuminate a black world that for many would otherwise have remained unseen--The Guardian

[Pitts'] talent for sharp summary is apparent early on...a natural talent for describing cities and their atmosphere--The Evening Standard

a beautiful study of black identity in Europe--The Telegraph

it is remarkable how quickly he gets to the soul of a place [...] What is consistently impressive throughout Pitts's work is his ability to blend fact with anecdote; the effect is often cinematic. At times, you may feel that instead of reading a non-fiction book you are watching a well-paced historical thriller--New Statesman

"forced me to stop and pause", "the book invites us to witness journeys of creativity of communities often unrecorded in studies of European history, highlighting the commonality of African-European experiences across the continent"--Olivette Otele, BBC History Magazine, Books of the Year

This book is a revelation: a humane, empathetic, urgent and truly eye-opening journey through lives and voices that are so often overlooked and unheard. Johny Pitts brings us Europe on its own terms--Owen Jones

Fascinating, urgent and stirring. His humility and honesty are wonderfully refreshing and by the end of the book our perception of the old continent has been challenged and reimagined--Bernardine Evaristo

Afropean seizes the blur of contradictions that have obscured Europe's relationship with blackness and paints it into something new, confident and lyrical. That a work like this is long overdue does nothing to detract from the originality of Pitts' accomplishment--Afua Hirsch

A quest to find unity among African Europeans introduces a singular new voice and reveals an unseen continent...Afropean announces the arrival of an impassioned author able to deftly navigate and illuminate a black world that for many would otherwise have remained unseen.--Colin Grant, The Guardian
