The #BlindianProject was created in 2017 after a friend forwarded me an AJ plus article about racism against Africans in India. This wasn’t a one-off incident, rather one of many stories exposing India’s dark-skinned complex.
I'm well aware of the complexities between Black and Indian relationships, However, I prefer to focus on our rich, and diverse similarities.
As a father of two Blindian children in a Black x Indian marriage, this story inspired me to reflect on how trailblazing our “Blindian” unions are. And, why there even more important today.
The #BlindianProject is a crowdsourced gallery, sharing the stories of Black x Indian couples from around the world. What started as a group of people sharing their stories, has turned into a global community known as the #BlindianProject.
When we first got married, aunties always made a point of mentioning other Black x Indian couples they "knew.” It took 10-years to meet another person/couple that shared our experiences. The #BlindianProject is a platform to share our stories - Jonah Batambuze
