Travel Talk: Emerging Beyond French Colonialism into the 21st Century

  • Wednesday, November 14, 2018
  • 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
  • Tacoma Community College, Bldg #11, 1st Floor Senate Room


Bustling, colorful Senegal is one of West Africa's most popular destinations, and also is one of the region's most developed, democratic and friendly nations, making seaside Dakar a prime spot to explore Senegalese culture and language.  Senegal boasts beautiful colonial architecture, rich cultural history, a historic slave house located in Goree Island (which is a poignant reminder of the region’s role as a West African center of the slave trade to the Americas), diverse community and secluded beaches blessed with world-famous surf breaks

Today, while shedding its colonial French culture from the 20th century, Senegal is becoming one of West Africa’s best metropolitan hub by emerging beyond its colonialism history with France. 

Attend this Travel Talk to learn how Senegal is finding its balance as a modern 21st century state actively engaged in the world and at the same time a country where the values of culture, community, religion, art, food and tourism are still cherished in the hearts of its people.

This Travel Talk will take place on November 14 at 5:30 p.m. at
Tacoma Community College

All Travel Talks are free and open to the public - no RSVP is necessary!
