Return To Senegal

The Kennedy Archives™ presents Return To Senegal. In 2010, President Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal invited Janie Sykes-Kennedy to participate in the Third World Festival of Black Arts & Culture in Dakar to provide historical context and media commentary about arts and the African Diaspora given her participation in the First World Festival of Negro Arts in Dakar in 1966. She spoke to over 5,000 Senegalese before an Akon concert and was covered extensively by their media.
