Notes on My Africa

First-year writing student Isoken Osagie has published a wonderful essay in Blunderbuss Magazine: “Notes on My Africa.” This is how that remarkable essay opens, and it only gets better from there:

I always wondered what living in America would be like, if it would be more entertaining than the eyo festival, or diverse like the intricate red detailing of the Benin or Igbo Ukwu art. I wondered how it would be having a white person as my friend, if she would let me brush her hair.

Run, don’t walk, to Blunderbuss for the rest.
