  • Americanah
    by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
    Hosted by: Clayborne Carson

    "The scenes where Ifemelu is interacting with white Americans have a lot of humor in them, but they also have a lot of pain. She is trying to communicate, trying to be understood, trying to develop a relationship across race lines--that must be something that so many people experience."

    Clayborne Carson, professor of American history and director of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute
