Achebe, Fela, Extra Golden
Friday, December 19, 2008
This week Studio 360 looks at "Things Fall Apart." The book that changed the face of West African literature turns 50. Author Chinua Achebe looks back. And the young Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Adichie describes how Achebe's pioneering work shaped her writing. Another Nigerian cultural legend, Fela Kuti, is the inspiration for New York choreographer Bill T. Jones’ new musical. Plus the music of Extra Golden.
