‘Americanah’: A Novel of Race, Love, and Identity #booksblogsandbubbly🍾 {Video Review}

Synopsis

Americanah (2013), “a novel of race, love and identity” by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (whose TED talk on Feminism was sampled in Beyonce’s 2014 Flawless) follows the life of Ifemelu (main) who has departed her native Nigeria to pursue education in the States, leaving behind her family, friends, and America-obsessed boyfriend. While in the U.S., she’s confronted for the first time with race, what it means to be black in America, and finds comfort as well as a niche as a race blogger.
