Chimamanda Adichie Is An Inspiration, Right?

AfrocentricoIn case you haven’t caught onto the hype yet, let us introduce you the this Nigerian writer. Three books in and she has everyone talking (in a good way). Adichie’s TED talk on Feminism has become one of the most popular yet and her book “Half Of a Yellow Sun” has been made into a movie starring Thandie Newton among other stars. Pretty cool right?

And it only gets better,

Beyonce just sampled Adichie in the new anthem “Flawless.” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tc8hyBfoBZg) .

Stay Inspired.
