Eritrea: Africa’s Newest Country Turns 20 Years Old Today!

From the Italians, to the British, to the Ethiopians, Eritrea is a country that’s withstood various forms of colonization, including from its African neighbor to the south, Ethiopia.  Through the struggle, it forged its own identity, rooted in a rich diversity and common struggle.

Today, I’m taking a moment to recognize the rich history and hopeful future the people of Eritrea wish for and deserve in so many ways.

As the clip shows below, the impact of colonization and 30-year struggle for independence is imprinted on the hearts & minds of Eritreans everywhere.  Through music, art, business, sports & celebration of life, Eritrea’s story has been told and preserved.  Such a beautiful history which has shaped the backbone of Eritreans everywhere.
