Nigerian author of Americanah, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (also known for her TED talk which appeared on Beyonce’s song, ***Flawless) appeared on Huffington Post Live and I was asked to submit a question for her to answer. This is a really great segment and she is thoughtful, eloquent, and just stunningly beautiful in her grace. I was honored to be able to engage her through the powers of technology and social media.
And now she knows my name
Asking Adichie a question about feminism on Huff Post Live
Just want to update you with some pretty awesome information about some things I’ve got going on.
I recently spoke about Bisexuality and Pansexuality in communities of color at Princeton’s University’s IvyQ conference. I had an amazing time and am so honored they invited me to present. It’s great to connect with younger folks and I remember the impact visitors had when I was in undergrad. I’m looking forward to doing more talks and presentations like that.
On March 8, I’ll be speaking at Columbia U’s Teacher’s College for the 6th Annual Health Disparities Conference. If you’re in or around NYC, you can click here for more information and to register. My session is at 4pm and will be on using social media to create health initiatives (with #SexyShred as the model).
In July, I’ll be at Netroots Conference doing a panel on Black Feminism with my sisters in #BlackFeministVoltron. That should be REALLY exciting. More details to come.
I really appreciate every bit of support and love I’ve received from all of you. I’m really enjoying being able to speak and network with people who are working to make changes in the world. We each have messages and methods. We have to use our talents to the best of our abilities and do our part.
