The greatest threat to freedom is the absence of criticism. Wole Soyinka
Yesterday was Nigerian poet, playwright and political activist Wole Soyinka’s birthday. Mr. Soyinka was the first African to win a Nobel Prize for Literature.
Here is a short interview with him by Skip Gates, which gives you a taste of his insight and demeanor. I hope you explore more of his work.
