Africa Freedom Prize, 2020 : WATCH: Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie Receives FNF Africa Freedom Prize
The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom awards the Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie the “Africa Freedom Prize 2020”. In her award-winning works, Adichie relentlessly addresses the central social grievances and political challenges of our time. As one of the most important intellectual champions of women's rights, she inspires people around the world in their pursuit of freedom.
“Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is the long-lost, undogmatic voice of liberal feminism in the 21st century. She represents the success and self-image of a new generation of African women writers who are increasingly making their voices heard on the world literary stage. In her fight for freedom and self-determination for women, Adichie contributes to the consolidation of liberal values and goals - not only in Africa, but all over the world ”, explains Prof. Dr. Karl-Heinz Paqué, Chairperson of the Board of Directors of the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, the jury's decision.
