UNO Professor to be Featured in the Olympics

A UNO English professor, Niyi Osundare, has made it into the Olympics… for his poetry. The Nigerian native will represent his country with the poem “Raindrum.” The poem will be read (not by Osundare) as part of a BBC poetry series called “The Written World” that will celebrate all the countries competing in the 2012 Olympic games. Congratulations!
