Literature & Power | Chinua Achebe: Home and Exile | Book Review
Video / June 20, 2020

BLACK LIVES MATTER: https://blacklivesmatters.carrd.co BREONNA TAYLOR GO FUND ME: https://www.gofundme.com/f/9v4q2-justice-for-breonna-taylor BLACK AUTHORS TO READ: Home and Exile came out of a series of three lectures Achebe delivered at Harvard University in December, 1998. The three lectures, now essays, continue a line of thought Achebe explored in essays and lectures over three decades and collected in Hopes and Impediments (1988). In the earlier volume, Achebe described the cultural oppression and “dispossession” that allowed works such as Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness (1899, 1902) to depict Africa as a backward continent incapable of producing serious thought or remarkable art. As he does in the new book, Achebe called for a renewed dialogue between Africans and Europeans—a dialogue that writers and readers are particularly equipped to engaged in.
