This post is for the seventh SFF.SE topic challenge of 2022, in which the site's community is encouraged to take part together in asking and answering questions on a particular topic each month. According to community votes on the topic challenge proposals thread, the July 2022 topic challenge is going to be devoted to a Nigerian-American science fiction and fantasy writer:

Nnedi Okorafor

What's a topic challenge and how do I take part?

See Announcing a Topic Challenge program for SFF.SE, and also this main meta post. In short, during July 2022 we should all try to either read some Nnedi Okorafor stories and ask interesting questions about them, or help out by answering other people's questions about it.

Participation is not obligatory in any sense, but those who participate will be forever remembered in the annals of our history. We'll keep a list of all Nnedi Okorafor questions asked during July 2022 in an answer to this meta post. At the end of the month, I'll collate some data like highest-scoring question, most-viewed question, highest-scoring answer, etc. There won't be any real-world rewards like in the old days when Stack Exchange was smaller and more generous, but I'll be awarding at least one bounty after the end of the month (assuming there's at least one good answer posted).

What's next?

Future topic challenges will be chosen by community votes, so come over and propose or vote on suggestions at:

Propose future topics for SFF topic challenges!

(The Nnedi Okorafor answer will be deleted from that thread at the start of July, since already chosen topics shouldn't stick at the top of the thread and distract people from those still to be voted on.)

    Note: I've let the topic challenge run for a few extra days because we forgot to start it in time.

    I wonder whether it would be worth running it over 2 months, July + August. This was done with at least one of the challenges last year, to compensate for reduced interest during the summer holidays. Commented Jul 6, 2022 at 11:28
