Nicole Amarteifio ’04 is the creator and executive producer of the hit African television
and web series “An African City.”
The show, which CNN and BCC have referred to as Africa’s answer to “Sex and the
City,” follows the lives of
five young African women who have recently resettled in Accra, Ghana (Amarteifio’s
hometown), after living abroad for most of their lives. “An African City” offers
a fresh take on the cosmopolitan experiences of women in modern Africa.
Following the screening of an episode of the program that takes on the tense
and tender ties between Africans and African-Americans, Professor Carina Ray, associate professor of African and Afro-American Studies will interview Amarteifio.
The event is free and open to campus community. Advance reservations are requested.
