Born in the United States to parents who emigrated from Sierra Leone, Nadia Sasso’s master’s project from Lehigh University is the documentary film, “Am I: Too African to be American or Too American to be African?”
The documentary film explores the complex identity formations of young African women living in America and West Africa who identify bi-culturally. It specifically looks at how they wrestle with concepts of race, complexion, gender, and heritage among other issues.
