African feminist, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie won the “Women’s Prize for Fiction” for her novel Half a Yellow Sun.

If y’all remember, I mentioned Ms. Adichie during Black History Month when I celebrated 29 days of Black Feminism. If you follow her social media ANYWHERE, show her some love by congratulating her. You should also look a sista up on YouTube and hear her in action.
