Zeb Sihouette (Paperback)
This book cannot be returned.
In her capacity as a writer in the Diaspora, Okafor graphically delineates the immigrant experience lived by a black woman, Zeb, who seeks refuge in the United States, after having been exiled by a dictatorial Nigerian Government as a result of her militant human rights activities. Assailed with the realities of her lowly immigrant status as well as the spectres of ethnicity, gender inequity and racism, she valiantly navigates through the clogs of discrimination, oppression and deprivation. She is constrained by the brute force of the vicissitudes of life to fall from grace, in the quest for a new, secure identity procured with the Green Card.
