Quotes to Live By: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Racism should never have happened and so you don't get a cookie for reducing it. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie


Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is a Nigerian author, phenomenal speaker, and outspoken feminist. She has received numerous awards for her writing. Many of her works are set in Nigeria and some focus on the Nigeria-Biafra war. Her novel Half a Yellow Sun was made into a movie and her TEDx talk was featured in Beyonce’s Flawless. If you want to expand your thinking, she’s definitely the writer you want to read and the speaker you want to hear. (The quote above is from her book Americanah.)

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
