Faith Adiele

My Journey Home follows three Americans—Armando Peña, Faith Adiele, and Andrew Lam—as they travel to their ancestral homelands.

These clips from the two-hour documentary show some of Adiele's story. The writer describes her parents' roles in the civil rights and African independence movements and her own experiences growing up as as a Nigerian-Nordic-American woman. 

Raised by her Scandinavian-American mother as the only bi-racial child in her small Washington state town, Adiele explores culture, identity, travel and spirituality as she travels to Africa in search of her father.
