BINTI by Nnedi Okorafor

Winner of the Hugo and Nebula Awards for Best Novella in 2015-16, Binti is the first major work of science fiction to feature a female African protagonist. Set in a future when intergalactic travel is a reality, this novel (the first of a trilogy) by Nigerian author Nnedi Okorafor traces the journey of a young woman named Binti who leaves home to study at a prestigious intergalactic university—the first of her race to do so. The book, which has been described as “Interstellar Afrofuturism", tells a sci-fi adventure story while subtly dismantling ideas of race and cultural identity.
