The Burden of Memory, the Muse of Forgiveness Summary

The Burden of Memory, the Muse of Forgiveness by Wole Soyinda

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?
