This book reviews the life and thought of an African who has left a major impact upon the world. He was the Senegalese physicist, historical and linguist, Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop, who was born in Diourbel, Senegal on Dec. 29, 1923, and died in Dakar on Feb. 7, 1986. No figure in the field of African civilization studies has been more highly regarded in the French and English-speaking world than Diop. In 1966 the First World Festival of Arts and Culture attributed jointly to the late W.E.B. DuBois and Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop its "Award of the Scholar who has exerted the greatest influence on Negro throught in the 20th century." The book has the finest essays by, extended interviews with, and detailed analyses of Diop. (98 illus.)
