Dr. Ezekiel Ette, assistant professor in NNU’s department of social work, recently published a book entitled “Nigerian Immigrants in the United States: Race, Identity and Acculturation.” Ette, himself an immigrant from Nigeria, narrates the experiences of Nigerian immigrants to the U.S. and argues that they come seeking opportunities just like the European immigrants from previous centuries.

In the book, Ette paints the picture of a group of resourceful, hardworking and determined individuals who struggled with cultural differences in the new land. The book seeks to help human-service workers understand the issues faced by Nigerian and African immigrants.

Ette’s book was published by Lexington Books and can be purchased at all major retail bookstores and online.
