So frustrating that there are SO many amazing African women writers who don’t get the western accolades as Chimamanda. Way richer, braver, soul and mind nourishing. Some recos here by @jhalakprize 2021 winner Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi https://t.co/guQSUWlrFM

So long as the (white) “Africanist”literary community remains committed to boosting the profile of the elite, gentle tongued Afropolitan—b/cuz that’s who they want to rub shoulders with—then this is the literary hell we will remain in. https://t.co/1cFqnEFJDI
