Africa Freedom Prize 2020

Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche has been awarded The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom “Africa Freedom Prize 2020”.

“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.

The award will be presented digitally on 14 December 2020.
