Pending the publication of the proceedings of the symposium, the organizers have promised to deepen the debates and extend its focus to other iconic Africans such as Kwamé Nkrumah and Cheikh Anta Diop, who have made tangible contributions to the growth of the continent.
A Successful symposium on the work of Amilcar CABRAL
Assane Seck University of Zinguinchor has hosted a three-day symposium on the life and work of Amilcar Cabral, great intellectual and freedom fighter. The event, held from 19 to 21 January 2023, was organized in conjunction with Cheikh-Anta Diop University in Dakar, Amadou Makhtar Mbow University, the Senegalese Association of Philosophy and TrustAfrica.
The opening ceremony of this important event was a great success and was chaired by the Senegalese Minister of Higher Education, Professor Moussa Baldé. The symposium which featured very rich debates and high-level exchanges, made it possible to revisit the work of the freedom fighter and to question the legacy of Cabral, fifty years after his assassination.
