My African Nordic Summer
What a summer! In early June I presented at the NonfictioNow Conference in Reykjavík Iceland, where I finally met Stockholm-based Nigerian travel photographer Lola Akinmade Åkerström (not pictured) and a cousin (pictured) joined me.
In late June / early July I presented at Documenta 14's Gathering of Biafran Children Survivors in Athens, Greece (pictured with Chris Okigbo's daughter Obi) and had lunch with a friend I hadn't seen in 34 years.
Now I'm at the Afro European Conference in Tampere, which is a revelation. Believe it or not, I just happen to be in Finland visiting family, and now I have a whole Afro-Finn posse! #squadgoals
