Join us for a panel discussion about Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah, this semester’s selection for the MIT Reads program. Selected in collaboration with My Sister’s Keeper, Americanah is a story of love, race, and identity centered around a young man and woman from Nigeria. As their stories unfold, tracing journeys from Lagos to London to Princeton, NJ, they face difficult choices and challenges in the countries they come to call home. Our panelists are:
Kimberly Juanita Brown, Visiting Assistant Professor and Martin Luther King Fellow
Nneka Dennie, Visiting Scholar, Women's and Gender Studies
Amah Edoh, Assistant Professor, Global Studies and Languages
Helen Elaine Lee, Professor, Comparative Media Studies / Writing
Doors open at 5 for those who have pre-registered; others will be seated starting at 5:20, as space permits. Books available for purchase at the event, in addition to our ongoing options for obtaining your copy.
If you require accommodations, please contact Nina Davis-Millis by October 26.
Community discussions will be held later in November (dates and locations coming soon.)
