“[F]or Europeans to enter into a view, a perspective where they will be able to share with others in a world of plural perspectives is to ask them to submit to revolution.”

“[W]hile the effectiveness of Title VII in ending employment discrimination remains the subject of dispute, it seems clear that civil rights era enactments at least have had the effect of forcing most discriminatory animus underground. As a consequence, in a disparate treatment case-a case in which the alleged discrimination is not pegged to a particular policy or practice and its effects, but to a specific decision allegedly made with discriminatory animus-proof will almost necessarily be made ‘indirectly,’ through the use of circumstantial evidence and the inferences that flow from it.”

“What began as an idea proposed by Senegal’s first president Léopold Sédar Senghor over 50 years ago, has now become a reality as Senegal has officially opened the Museum of Black Civilizations, one of the largest of its kind in the world. Senegal’s current president Macky Sall inaugurated the museum earlier today in Dakar. The design of the building, which contains 14,000 square meters of floor space and a capacity for 18,000 exhibits, was inspired by circular traditional homes native to Southern Senegal, BBC Africa reports. Its size is comparable to the National Museum of African American History in Washington, according to Al Jazeera….The museum, is dedicated to ‘decolonizing African knowledge’ and hosts artifacts and exhibitions representative of both continental Africa, and its diaspora. The museum’s first exhibitions showcase works from artists from Mali and Burkina Faso as well as from Cuba and Haiti. The diaspora in Brazil and the United States are also represented in the museum’s collection.”

This is amazing and I definitely want to visit one day! The only thing I hate, is that the Sengalese were able to build this museum due to a “$34 million investment” from…you know who….CHINA! I wish African nations, as well as all African people worldwide, would start doing for self!
