I was perusing Instagram last week when I saw some promotions for the documentary screening AM I: Too African to be American or Too American to be African? I got very giddy when I saw this title. I love, love, love that people are having this conversation and this conversation is becoming more mainstream. As a Nigerian-American, I’ve had countless conversations like this with family and friends, but I wanted it to go beyond the kitchen table. Conversations like these were one of the reasons why I started Gidi & Pearls. I was inspired to create a digital space where Nigerian-American women could be inspired by both their Nigerian and American heritage.
The next screening is on Thursday, October 22, 2015 in DC. For more information, check out the AM I site.
