In the wake of Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine, Africans were among millions who fled for their lives to neighboring countries. When reports surfaced about Black people not being allowed fair access to evacuation transport—some even being removed from trains to make room for white passengers—3 African women went to work. Korrine Sky, Patricia Daley, and Tokunbo Koiki joined forces, quickly raised $60,000, and used social media to help more than 500 leave Ukraine. That’s 500 African students facing life-threatening conditions who were rescued by an effort led by Africans living abroad.
