Description: Nobel Laurete Wole Soyinka considers all of Africa -- indeed, all the world -- as he poses the question: once repression stops, is reconciliation between oppressor and victim possible? In the face of centuries long devastations wrought on the African continent and her Diaspora by slavery, colonialism, Apartheid and the manifold faces of racism what form of recompense could possibly be adequate? In a voice as eloquent and humane as it is forceful, Soyinka challenges notions of simple forgiveness, of confession and absolution, as strategies for social healing. Ultimately, he turns to art -- poetry, music, painting -- as one source that may nourish the seed of reconciliation, art as the generous vessel that can hold together the burden of memory and the hope of forgiveness.
