Discount on Titles from the AFRICA IS A WOMAN'S NAME Special Collection

Director Joanna Lipper elegantly explores past and present in THE SUPREME PRICE as she tells the remarkable story of Hafsat Abiola, daughter of Nigeria's President M.K.O. Abiola who won a historic vote in 1993 that promised to end years of military dictatorship. Shortly after the election, Abiola was imprisoned and his victory annulled. His daughter, on the verge of graduating from Harvard, decided to return home and join her parents' struggle. The Abiola family's intimate story unfolds against the epic backdrop of Nigeria's evolution from independence in 1960 through present day as Hafsat continues to face the challenge of transforming a corrupt culture of governance into a democracy capable of serving Nigeria's most marginalized population: women.
