This text – like “The Open Sore” – derives from the three lectures Soyinka gave at the DuBois Institute (the inaugural lectures of the Genevieve McMillan Foundation). Where “The Open Sore” offered a critique of the Nigerian military and its repression of human and civil rights, “The Burden of Memory” addresses the next logical question in a broader global context: is reconciliation between oppressor and oppressed possible?
Wole Soyinka was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1986. Signed by Author(s).
