University Press of Mississippi

In this chapter, Esther L. Jones analyzes texts by Nnedi Okorafor and Tomi Adeyemi, arguing that these authors challenge and rewrite social scripts of mental health and disability, particularly as they relate to young black women. Through examining these issues, readers are encouraged to interrogate our own complicity within these cultural narratives.

Keywords:   Okorafor, Nnedi, Adeyemi, Tomi, Black girl magic, Mental Health in Literature, Disability in Literature
