Remembering Ken Saro-Wiwa at Maynooth University on International Archives Day

Today, 9th June, marks international Archives Day.  It's wonderful to have the opportunity to  highlight a collection in Maynooth University Library which is available on open access and available to all, not just today but every day.

If you want to read the story of how Maynooth University acquired the death row correspondence from Nigerian writer and activist Ken Saro-Wiwa to Sister Majella McCarron (OLA) , you can download the free ebook Silence Would be Treason: Last Writings of Ken Saro-Wiwa 
If you want to hear recordings of people connected with Ken Saro-Wiwa listen to our audio archive
If you would like to hear Mark Dummett speak about Amnesty International's  report on the Niger Delta listen to our YouTube recording created at Maynooth University, at our annual event to mark the 23rd anniversary of the execution of Ken Saro-Wiwa in November 2017.
Or, if you want to check out all the resources in our Ken Saro-Wiwa Archive, consult our comprehensive Ken Saro-Wiwa LibGuide.
