Americanah Summary

Americanah follows the lives of two Nigerian childhood sweethearts, Ifemelu and Obinze.

After meeting in secondary school in Nigeria, Ifemelu and Obinze both go abroad in search of greener pastures.

Ifemelu goes to study in the U.S., while Obinze immigrates illegally to the U.K.

Americanah follows their journeys in their new countries-of-residence with a particular focus on their struggles, especially those related to race.

Ifemelu eventually becomes a popular race blogger.

When we meet her, she is on the verge of moving back to Nigeria—where Obinze lives—after 13 years in the U.S. (I’ll stop there so that I don’t inadvertently leak any spoilers).
