Mainstream African history defines the process of revisionism; the continent’s experience embellished and re-embellished until reality is obscured by layers of imagination. In “Africa and the Revisionists of History,” Nobel Prize-winning writer Wole Soyinka attempts to pierce the veil. He speaks at 7:30 p.m. in the University of Maryland’s Stamp Student Union, Grand Ballroom, University Blvd. & Adelphi Rd., College Park. FREE. (301) 405-2118. (MD)
