On November 16, Google paid homage to Africa’s greatest story teller, Chinua Achebe, by changing it’s logo to a powerful Google doodle of the legend.

Today would be the “Things Fall Apart” author’s 87th birthday. Before his 2013 passing, The New York Times described the author as the person who “helped to revive African literature and rewrite the story of a continent that had long been told by Western voices.”

Hit the flip to see why folks believe that Achebe is one of the most important writers of our time.
