About the Co-Author
Before moving to Amsterdam 3 years ago, Jennifer Tosch grew up in San Francisco and lived in the Bay Area for most of her life. She has Dutch-Surinamese roots and was an exchange student from U.C. Berkeley study at Utrecht University. During her stay she also researched her family heritage and following graduation in 2012 she founded Black Heritage Amsterdam Tours. The tours highlight the contributions of the African Diaspora to Dutch society from the 16th century to the present, a first of its kind initiative in the Netherlands. To view a Tedx talk by Jennifer Tosh, please click here.
