Description:

Pap Ndiaye’s lecture will focus on the multiple ways in which African Americans' struggles for freedom, equality, and dignity were seen, interpreted, and analyzed in parts of colonial Africa, from World War I to the 1960s and beyond. Analyzing conversations between African and African-American soldiers, trips by African intellectuals in the US, and time Malcolm X spent in Africa and Western Europe, Ndiaye will show how a transnational perspective can further our understanding of racial politics, then and now.

Pap Ndiaye is a professor of history at Sciences Po (Paris) and the Buffett Visiting Professor in International Studies at Northwestern University. Learn more about Ndiaye.
