Dare Johnson, the photographer, got back to me about three weeks after Adichie’s visit on February 27. This was right around the time of Achebe’s passing.
As we set about organizing a memorial tribute to Achebe, everything else took second place on my list of priorities, including writing a blogpost on Adichie’s visit. But by the time the day of the memorial tribute came and went, I had forgotten that the photos from Adichie’s event had still not been posted. [Click HERE to see photos from Achebe’s tribute.]
Recently while I was raiding my image folder for something I can’t now remember, I discovered them and thought I’d share them with you!

What a beautiful gathering. I am thoroughly jealous of everyone in these pictures (and they are great photos with Ms. Ainehi looking sleek in black with her gorgeous locs :). Chimamanda Adichie be stylin'! I always love the prints and colors that she wears and her natural hair is always on point. I will admit on public internet that while I sometimes don't agree with the way she presented the "hair revolution"..... that she is my idol in natural hair and clothing and writing as she deftly warned against the single story that I have been taught to write.
