Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie before on this blog. I really encourage folks to buy/support her books. She’s a good writer amazing cultural critic, and a witty feminist. You can watch all of her fabulousness in this TEDTalk…Enjoy 🙂

The movie features She is such an underrated actress. She also rarely gets props for being Anika Noni Rose, who I have a girl crush on 🙂 Disney’s first Black Princess:
I bet she will be amazing in this film:
