2015 World Voices Festival Opening Night: Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o (audio)
For this flagship opening night event, leading writers from around the globe presented their worst- and best-case scenarios for where the world may be in the year 2050, offering insights they haven’t yet published, and the opportunity to consider how our future is intimately tied to our present. This track is an excerpt from Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o’s speech.
