There's been a bit of buzz surrounding the name Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie on the interwebz. Beyoncé released an album and people were captivated by a voice that wasn't hers.
In Beyoncé's song ***Flawless she samples from a TEDx talk Chimamanda gave titled 'We Should All Be Feminists'. The talk has reached many - and has now reached many more. I hadn't heard it - or had even heard of Chimamanda until listening to the song ***Flawless. Here are the clips from this powerful TEDx Talk found on the song:
Clearly, I needed to find out more of about this woman! I googled her name - and in addition to finding her TEDx Talk - I found that she was an author - an incredibly well regarded one!
Her most recent novel Americanah is getting rave reviews - and was getting rave reviews WAY before she started blasting from speakers everywhere.
Please join me in reading Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
I think it will prove to be a great read! Can't wait to hear what you have to say!
Also, check out her TEDx Talk! It's great! (It's about 30 minutes long but WELL worth it!)
