Award-winning Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has just been nominated for a Grammy. Yes, a music award. A sample from her Ted Talk "We Should All Be Feminists" is featured in Beyoncé's hit song "Flawless." Adichie's nomination, a first for a Nigerian writer, is an exciting demonstration of contemporary intersections of the literature of the African Diaspora and other arts. Adichie first gave her talk to a live audience, it later "went viral" on the video sharing platform Youtube (where Beyoncé accessed the work so inspirational to her developing feminist identification), it was initially published via Kindle, and is forthcoming as a paperback.
