Dr. Morales has called our attention to a special series taking place next week as part of NYU’s Institute of African American Affairs Scholar-in-Residence program. Wole Soyinka, Nobel Laureate for Literature 1986, will be involved in three events beginning with a lecture on October 3rd, a film screening on October 4th, and a conversation on October 7th. All three events will be held at NYU’s Tishman Auditorium at Vanderbilt Hall, which is located at 40 Washington Square South in New York City. I know that most of our students are located at a distance from NYC, but some of you are nearby and others of you might want to journey to attend. I encourage you to attend. The events are free and open to the public but you would want to RSVP at (212) 998-4222. Details can be found on their website linked here.
