The African culture is infused with the American culture in many ways. The cultures are mixed together through arts, food, festivals, and even movies. The Harlem Renaissance was a great event the occurred through the 1920s and the middle of the 1930s. This was a time when black writers, artists, musicians, photographers, poets, and scholars were drawn to Harlem , NY (which was know as the culture center of the time) . Some of Hollywood's most famous actresses are of African descent. Halle Berry from X-Men and The Last Man, Paula Patton from Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, and Keke Palmer from the new hit TV series on Fox called Scream Queens and the movie Abducted. Most of us are so used to the American way, that we don't know that others cultures are infused with our own.

The African culture and American culture do clash because of differences in language and religion. The people in the Americas usually speak the one language of English, whereas the people in Africa can speak a number of exotic languages. In Africa, women can still be forced into marriage at a young age because it is part of their culture. Here in America, that sort of thing is not in practice. You marry who you wish. There are so many discrepancies between the two cultures, that it is hard to believe that they are connected.
