Adichie Discussion Questions
Comprehension: What does it mean to have only one single story of literature?

Application: Because we likely
did not grow up in Nigeria
, and likely only know about Africa from popular images, how can we keep from thinking it’s just “a
place of beautiful landscapes
, beautiful animals,
and incomprehensible people
, fighting senseless wars,
dying of poverty and AIDS
, unable to speak for themselves,
and waiting to be saved
, by a kind, white foreigner”?
