RIP Chinua Achebe

Chinua

Today all of Africa mourns the passing of a truly great man, Chinua Achebe. This remarkable Nigerian author was a literary Nelson Mandela and his death leaves every one of us bereaved. I am comforted by the knowledge that his spirit and genius will live on in his poetry and writing, and deeply humbled that he shared them with us throughout his life.
