The Interview - Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie grew up in Nigeria and says it was only when she went to America to study at the age of 19 that she became aware of the labels black and African.

She talks to Carrie Gracie about how she has tackled the problems caused by race, gender politics and her country's colonial history, and how she thinks her generation can turn Nigeria around.


  1. Thanks, brother! I feel that I got to see the inside of the heart of the woman who's name is on everyone's lips! Great interview. The brits are very demanding interviewers, or at least Carrie Gracie!

  2. That was a great interview and Chimamanda handled it very well and gracefully too.
