There is a large African community currently living in India. They are regularly faced with racism from local Indians, and are often the target of violence. BBC reporter, Vikas Pandey, believes one reason for this is because many Indians do not know that Africans played a large role in the history of their country.
Pandey travels to the African Sidi community in India with one local African Indian man to learn more about the history of Africans in India. Watch the video from BBC News below to see their journey.
