Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Half of a Yellow Sun (via tooroughfingersoftheworld)
One of my all-time favourite quotes from one of my all-time favourite books from one of my all-time favourite authors.
deeeeeep as hell!
this is exactly what I was discussing with some friends yesterday, I have hard time understanding already what it means to be Congolese but I get branded as African wherever I go as if I could represent 54 countries!!
Then again being outside of the continent taught me to appreciate other “Africans”.
