  • Help XUASA bring Chimamanda to Xavier - 6 hours ago | 45 views

    Posted: 10/1/14 6:09 PM

    The Xavier Universtity African Students Asocciation is asking for students help in bringing Chimamanda Adiche to Xavier. Chimamanda is the lady that her words were featured in Beyonce's song "Flawless". She is also an award winning author of books like "half of a yellow sun"' and others. To bring her to xavier we want to post short video clips of Xavier students saying they want her to come. We would be doing it randomly by just asking people to feature in our video which is very voluntary. We also want to start a twitter and instagram # tag which is " #Chimamanda should come to Xavier". We would be glad if Xavier students are willing to help. So be on the look for us on campus. Thank you.
