A Moonless, Starless Sky: Ordinary Women and Men Fighting Extremism in Africa– Alexis Okeowo

“There is never a single story about any place,” stated the Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie in a powerful Ted Talk almost 10 years ago. The danger of having a single story of Africa, she argues, is that we lose the diversity and beauty of the many different people, situations, and stories. They are consumed by a single, negative narrative. That’s why Alexis Okeowo’s A Moonless, Starless Sky is so important. In this non-fiction book, Okeowo breaks down the media’s single narrative of places like northern Nigeria by simply telling stories.
