Never Look a Nigerian in the Face

Taking its title from the original title: “Never Look an American in the Eye: A Memoir: Flying Turtles, Colonial Ghosts, and the Making of a Nigerian American” by Okey Ndibe, this essay is a re-cast of our experience here, a place where we supposedly should call home. 

When we speak of nothing, we speak of a little silence: of our Nigerianess, a consciousness that is well versed and important before any international or ‘Americanah’ connections. We therefore speak of the making of “The Angry Nigerian.”
