Postcolonial Philosophy in Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche’s Purple Hibiscus

Keywords: Hybridity, Culture, Race, Diaspora, Alienate, Destabilization


Post-colonialism is a useful tool for educating the West about the need of not undermining any culture because of racial differences. The post-colonial discourse criteria of appropriation, abrogation, untranslated terms, hybridity, and affiliation served as the foundation for this study’s text criticism. Since this is the fundamental theme of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s writings in Purple Hibiscus, it implies that African people’s heritage and identity are valued by everyone, particularly those who are quasi, and that the colonial process can be truly ended on the African continent. There must be a different culture to replace the lost indigenous culture.
