Experience West Africa


Visualize this: You’ve just stepped out of the airport in Lomé, Togo. It’s 77 degrees out and you’re welcomed by a greenery of palm trees and the sun’s warm embrace on your skin. All around you, you see beautiful representations of yourself, welcoming their loved ones, welcoming you. Magic and Melanin. You’ve arrived in West Africa, the land of your ancestors. You are home. 

Magic and Melanin’s Immersion Experience is aimed to ignite this feeling of homecoming within you. We’ve all been to Wakanda and fell in love. Here’s an opportunity to take this connection with the motherland a step further and explore, discover, reconnect with the real nations of the African continent, each so diverse and enriching. 

The future is Mother Africa. Come see for yourself this December 2019!
