African Day in Georgia

African community live in Georgia during several centuries. There is even an ethnic group in Abkhazia called Afro-Abkhazs. They came to Georgia in the 18th century as slaves of Shevashidzes. Since this people from Ethiopia have taken surname Abasha and settled in village Adziubzha. Also Africans lived in Adjara and in Samtskhe-Javakheti Region.

Nowadays in Georgia live several mixed Afro-Georgia families. Also here are many students and sportsmen from Africa. They have also registred NGO "Union of African Youth of Georgia". On April guys with Georgian collegues held "African Day".
