I am an Associate Professor History and Cultural Studies at Chatham University. My professional fields are Africology, African History, World History, Conflict Transformation, Social & Cultural Anthropology, and Intercultural Communication. In my native Senegal (Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS), I helped spearhead many community development initiatives with the regional bureaus of UNICEF, UNESCO, and the Archdiocese of Dakar in the late 1980s – early 1990s. I am namely author of "Mali: The Most Evocative Name in Occidental Africa," in The International Encyclopedia of Protest and Revolution, Blackwell; "The Politics of Religion in Black Africa" in The Rise of Religion-Based Political Movements […], Jakarta: Bandung Spirit Book Series; « L'Intercontinentale de la fin de la fin de l'histoire et les contours d'un Nouvel Humanisme antilibéral », [Council for the Development of Social Science in Africa –CODESRIA]; co-author/editor of L'Idéal panafricain contemporain: fondements historiques et perspectives futures/The Panafrican Ideal: Historical Foundations, Perspectives for the Future, Dakar: CODESRIA; "For Africans in World History: Extended Forms of Democratic Pluralism" in The Asian Review of World Histories, Boston, MA: Drill Publishers. Married to a female compatriot for three decades, we have raised two young Black Women in France, Senegambia, and the United (?) States. At the core, if any, I have matured up to this point into some (practicing Catholic) Afrocentrist teacher-scholar from a Muslim land who currently lives and works in a Jewish neighborhood in America… I HAVE EXPERIENCED RACISM ALL MY LIFE AND HAVE THE IMMODESTY (?) TO BELIEVE THAT i HAVE HAD THE GOOD FORTUNES TO FIND AVAILABLE TOOLS TO DEAL WITH IT APPROPRIATELY ENOUGH, AT EVERY STAGE. Freedom is not free!
