African literary legend Chinua Achebe died last week at the age of 82. While re-reading, re-imagining  and revisiting his work, we came across this video of interest, in which Mr. Achebe discusses the devastating impact of colonization on Africa. Listen to what the man referred to as the “Grandfather of African Literature” has to say about colonization which he says was “made possible by the devastation of the slave trade that came before.”
