African Americans Find American Dream in So. Africa

Mshale, Posted: Aug 26, 2008

MINNEAPOLIS African Americans are finding fulfillment in South Africa as they establish businesses there, reports Mshale. A documentary, "Blacks Without Borders" made in 2006 and 2007, found 12 African Americans now living in South Africa. Cora Vaughn was a successful lawyer in Chicago when she accomplished her dream of living in South Africa. She abandoned her million-dollar-a-year practice to open a bed-and-breakfast. A drug addict as a teenager and Harvard Business School graduate, Charles Henderson moved to South Africa in 1993 after he visited friends there. He was swept up in the challenge of building a peaceful and successful nation and opened a business that provides workshops on leadership, customer service and overcoming apartheid.
