When her family ups and moves to Nigeria following the assassination of civil rights leader Malcolm X (a close personal family friend), the infectiously spirited Jacqueline Marie Butler finds herself at a crossroads of personal and political upheaval, bearing the weight of Africa (and the world) on her slim—yet spunky—shoulders. Entertaining and uplifting, Queens Girl in Africa captures an unforgettable moment in time for a teenager abroad—when questions of self and place intertwine with the realities of homework and hormones as Jacqueline assuredly, hilariously navigates the energy, excitement and unpredictability of the 1960s.
