Jaqoueline Lingoma moved to Lexington six months ago from the Democratic Republic of Congo with her three children. So far, things are going great for her—she is ever-thankful of the Kentucky Refugee Ministry and all who have helped her. Here, she reflects on her past, how the refugees at Henry Clay Apartments have formed their own community, and her optimistic outlook of the future.

    Africa in the Bluegrass. That says it all. Not Americans but, Africans. Wanting all America has but to remain among their own people. Caucasians do this sort of thing and they are racist. If Obama gets into office will the Africans rename our nation The United States of Africa?
