“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”
A Nigerian girl is born in Chicago on a leap year: February 29th, just two months after the sudden death of her father. Life altered for good, with only the love and care of her mother.
Now a fatherless child, Ola, and her mom move back to Nigeria. But when unforeseen circumstances develop, Ola must return to her birthplace. She quickly discovers the disheartening truth: bias stems from inside and outside of the home.
GET YOUR FOOT OFF MY NECK is a memoir written from a Nigerian-American woman’s perspective.
It is about a resilient little girl who grew up to become a woman who prevailed despite abuse, betrayal, and internalized racism.
Infused with colorful multicultural anecdotes, quotes, and stories, Ola’s message is clear:
Stepping on necks is undoubtedly consequential.
