Day 56: Americanah

Chimamanda Adichie

Writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s TEDx talk on feminism was so powerful and inspiring that it was sampled on Beyoncé’s track “Flawless.” Now Chimamanda has released a new book, “We Should All Be Feminists,” adapted from her very important speech.

She says that “awesome” is not in her vocabulary, and that gender is a conversation that needs to be had. Her TED talk The Danger of a Single Story is a moving account of the singularity of perception and how literature should refrain from it.
