One Maryland One Book Program: Feminism in West Africa


Tuesday, October 24 - 2 pm

Location: Ocean Pines Branch

Feminism is a strong theme in this year’s One Maryland One Book selection Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Dr. James King of Salisbury University will explore the challenges presented by West African culture with regard to the discussion of feminism. In what ways to vestiges of male patriarchal dominance persist in the culture and life of West Africans, living in the 21st Century? How do the women of these African nations reconcile themselves to both responsibilities, their ancestral past, and the new millennium?
