Dubem Okafor: The Sentinel Interview 


To many students of African Poetry, Christopher Okigbo is one of the greatest to come out of the continent. His life and work were celebrated in 2007 during the Christopher Okigbo International Conference. Dr Dubem Okafor presented "Okigbo as Cultural Globalist" during that conference.
