Preeminent Nigerian novelists Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Chris Abani, exiled writer Chenjerai Hove of Zimbabwe, and Zambian memoirist Alexandra Fuller join Nobel Laureate and BMI Senior Fellow Wole Soyinka and explore the myriad challenges facing Africa today: Why do despots continue to gain and remain in power? Has the legacy of colonialism permanently impaired pan-African unity? To what extent are Africans themselves responsible for solving the continent's seemingly intractable problems? And how should Western nations be held accountable for the war, famine, and genocide that continue to rage?
