Diallo on Tour

Ben Okri not only penned a poem for the exhibition of Ayuba Suleiman Diallo at the National portrait gallery but toured a writing workshop around the country, inspiring reactions and guiding the public to form these into their own poetic reactions to the portrait.



Meditations on Greatness: Ben Okri in conversation takes place at Africa Writes on 4 July 2015. Tickets available now from the British Library.
