"So Long a Letter: The Modern Legacy of Senegalese Author & Feminist, Mariama Ba"

Thursday, April 5 | 5:30 p.m.
116 Gore Hall

This lecture explores the lasting legacy of one of Senegal’s most renowned authors; Mariama Bâ, and her famous novel “So Long a Letter.” The themes Mariama Bâ explored in this landmark novel published in 1979, and her life’s work in general, are still so relevant almost 40 years later that her legacy is very much alive and well in present day Senegal. This can especially be seen when it comes to navigating women’s issues in education and in balancing old customs and modern women. Stay on after the lecture to meet the speaker and enjoy UDairy's 1923 ice cream! Registration is encouraged.
