On NPR : 'Americanah' Author Explains ’Learning’ To Be Black In The U. S
Adichie is a MacArthur Fellowship winner and author of the novels Purple Hibiscus and Half of A Yellow Sun. Her novel Americanah explores this question of what it means to be black in the U.S., and tells the story of a young Nigerian couple, one of whom leaves for England and the other of whom leaves for America.
The title, she says, is a Nigerian word for those who have been to the U.S. and return with American affectations.
"It's often used," she says, "in the context of a kind of gentle mockery."« STOKELY CARMICHAEL, A Philosopher Behind The Black Power MovementBBC NEWS:PUPIL PUNISHED FOR WEARING WRONG SHOES »
