The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C15H14N2, contains two mol­ecules. The amine NH group connects two aromatic systems with similar C—N—C bond angles of 120.96 (16) and 119.75 (16)° for each independent mol­ecule. In contrast, the dihedral angles between the benzene rings are significantly different for the two independent mol­ecules, viz. 69.1 (2) and 79.9 (2)°.
