Memoirs of a Nigerian-American woman

“If there’s a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, then you must write it.”

-Toni Morrison

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.
