Details:

African-African Americans.  No. That’s not a grammatical error.  That is a phrase Ajoku created to describe those such as himself.  American Born African (ABA), the more nationally specific American Born Nigerian (ABN) or Liberian African American (LAA) for instance are interesting phrases but what do they mean? 
They are phrases invented by first generation American born offspring of African parents to identify themselves.  They resemble phrases like New Yoricans and Jamericans used by some Puerto Rican and Jamaican American youth.  A voice for a formerly invisible segment of the American population that is rapidly expanding and now coming of age is forthcoming in Continental Drift: The African-African American Experience.


Chronicling Ajoku’s journey of self discovery, this book is a vivid narrative that recounts his growing up as the son of Nigerian immigrants in New York.  It will enlighten the reader about pressing issues with a sense of urgency, yet dazzle them with a sprinkle of humor and satire. 

BIO:

FitzGerald Chinemerem Ajoku holds a bachelor’s degree in Health and Society from State University of New York (SUNY), College at Old Westbury.  He is also a former chairperson of the African Students Union at SUNY Stony Brook.  He became interested in writing about this subject when he returned from a trip to Nigeria in 2007.  Feeling that he had completed a full circle in self realization, he also realized that another circle in self actualization would begin and overlap the previous as it is a lifelong process of development.  There were always issues that interested him about his environment.  He grew up in New York City and the surrounding suburbs.  Therefore, he was exposed to both black American life as well African life through his family background.  Throughout his life there were always Americans who did not fully embrace him and Africans who did not do so either.  He struggled with his identity for much of his young life and likened it to having middle child syndrome.  He felt left out because he was not part of either extreme.  He eventually decided in his early teens that he would not let others define him and he frequently had dialogue with his peers regarding the matter of their self perception.  Being black and American while having a tangible African heritage is uniquely awesome.  So much so that it compelled him to write about it.
