Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is one of my favourite writers. I love listening to her talks on Africa, writing, Identity and various combination of all three. Here she talks about Europe in different lights from the distrustful airport authorities, former colonizers suffering from amnesia, misguided and presumptuous leaders and more.She is candid about her interactions with and thoughts on the European experience from colonial times to date.
What I enjoyed most about her speech is that while she was clearly angry at the words of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, she calmly picked apart his speech examining the truths and lies within. It is a very interesting and thought provoking speech. Watch it below.
