The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 (2011), Göran Hugo Olsson

You heard it right folks, the FBI considered free breakfasts for poor children to be the most dangerous internal threat to the country. Literally the kind of thing Jesus would do was the most dangerous threat to the country.

jean-luc-gohard:

The most dangerous thing society teaches boys and men, especially white boys and men, is that their emotions are objective logic and reason and that anyone who disagrees is being irrational.

I remember reading her first novel, Purple Hibiscus. I was thinking, this Kambili character is so much like who i was becoming, i was questioning everything taught to me. Listen, i wanted to know why the religion and ways of my people were not good enough, why our names could not be used in church as baptismal names. I wanted answers and here i was reading a book by a woman from my part of the world writing about characters with names like mine, with thoughts like mine. I instantly feel in love with the writing of Adichie. I have read all her books so far, some even pre-ordered. I introduced friends to her writing, she is unapologetic about her words, she is fierce. She has a certain fire, she is a rare find. I am an Igbo woman just like Adichie. Let me explain, if you think it is hard being a feminist in America, it is ten times harder being a feminist as a Nigerian. It is extremely difficult sometimes discussing feminist ideologies even amongst Nigerian women, although most are fiercely independent, feminism is a dangerous word to use. I adore Adichie. I adore her because she might have just stopped at being an amazing writer but she didn’t. That is why i adore her, she took it a step further, she challenged the status quo, she writes about women with strong characters, soft minds when in love and a strong will to overcome. After Purple Hibiscus, she wrote one of the best books i will ever read, Half of a Yellow Sun. In that book, Adichie wrote about a war some of our people did not survive, a war the Nigerian government has decided to erase from the history books in Nigeria. Yes, the Nigerian Government has this stupid idea that if they remove the genocide of over a million people in their history books, it will not start a revolt. She wrote about the Biafran war and it was a story written with passion and love for her people, Igbos. Simply put, Chimamanda Nigozi Adichie is amazing.
