Kalamazoo College Professor of History and Director of African Studies Joseph Bangura and Kalamazoo College Center for International Programs Executive Director Margaret Wiedenhoeft recently visited Université Cheikh Anta Diop Chancellor/President Ibrahima Thioub in Dakar, Sénégal, to strengthen the ties between their institutions.

Bangura also presented Thioub with a copy of his book titled “The Temne of Sierra Leone: African Agency in the Making of a British Colony,” which was released last year.

Thioub’s academic specialties are history, the modern and contemporary history of Africa, and the Atlantic slave trade. He is also a history professor and a former resident director for K study abroad programs.
