Australia has become home for a significant number of African migrants with the 2006 Census data showing that there were 248,699 African-born people living in Australia (Commonwealth of Australia, 2011). Increasing immigration has been specified as one of the forces promoting globalisation, and identities become more complex for immigrants as they are influenced by their native culture, the local culture to which they have immigrated, and the ‘global’ culture, thus potentially leading to a plurality of identities and ‘culturalisms’ (Cuccioletta, 2001/2002).
