Turks of African Descent:
Photographer Ahmet Polat began this journey in 2006 in an effort to expose the forgotten African history of the Ottoman Empire and document the Turks of African slave heritage. With the publication of his photo book AfroTurks, Polat gives a viewing into the inner worlds of the black minority in Turkey.
