_MG_9116rsHi, my name is Alexis Okeowo and I’m a staff writer for The New Yorker and a fellow at the New America Foundation. I’m based in Brooklyn, but used to live in Nigeria, Mexico, and Uganda. I’m working on a book about ordinary people standing up to extremism in Africa. And yes, I really grew up in Alabama.
