Lecture by WOLE SOYINKA

Entitled " Art, Dialogue & Outrage "

Accused of conspiracy for attempting to broker peace in the Nigerian Civil War(1967 - 70), Akinwande Oluwole "Wole" Soyinka has remained active in the decades since his release from prison as a critic of international political corruption and brutality. In 2010 he founded the Democratic Front for a People's Federation, a party to oppose corruption and apathy. Professor Soyinka's drama draws on the mythology of the Yoruba and traditional popular African theater as well as classical and modern Western influences. Wole Soyinka is the first African to win the Nobel prize for Literature.
