Friday, December 8, 2006.  Twenty years ago today, Nobel Prize winner Wole Soyinka gave his Nobel lecture, a call to action against the apartheid regime in South Africa.  I discuss Soyinka, his speech, as well as the efforts to change the situation in South Africa.  Those efforts included a famous protest song organized by Steven Van Zandt, "Sun City."

Podcast theme music composed and performed by Marc Rose.
