Between the Lines: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie with Zadie Smith

Yesterday,  The Schomburg Center live streamed a fun conversation between authors Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Zadie Smith. Both of these women are fabulous writers, so it was wonderful to see them together.  I still haven’t read Smith’s White Teeth or Adichie’s Americanah (that book thick azz hell!!), but those books are definitely on  my summer reading list!!

We should all be feminists: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I’ve written about 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 🙂


I would strongly recommend folks read the book first. “Half of a Yellow Sun” was written by Nigerian author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.  I hope the new film does the book justice. It’s a complex tale of twin sisters, who choose very different paths, during the Nigerian-Biafran War.

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

I bet she will be amazing in this film:
