I am Black!” This was the statement made by Mr. Boni Emmanuel when I interviewed him at his restaurant on November 11th. This statement, coming from him, was both powerful and empowering to hear.
Boni Emmanuel came to Taiwan more than 10 years ago after studying and working in Austria for several years. He is originally from Ivory Coast in West Africa.
He has lived and traveled all over the world. He was kind enough to share with me his insights as far as being a black man in all these different locals.
Boni has a family here and he gave me a lot of useful information about the Taiwan legal system. His restaurant is in the Hualien section of the north of Taiwan.
