Racine Senghor and several directors received Cuban Ambassador to Dakar, Maydolis Sosa Hilton, at the seat of the Museum of Black Civilizations, where she learned first hand about the rich cultural history of that nation.

The professor extended to the Cuban ambassador the possibility of carrying out joint projects and urged that relations between Senegal and Cuba make the most of cultural elements and support each other.

When thanking the visit to the museum, the president of the Administration Council highlighted that Cuba is quite meaningful from the cultural and historic point of view and recalled his visits to the island.

“It is a great country and I can say this because I have been there twice,” he said after recalling the first time he met Historic Leader Fidel Castro at an Education Congress in Havana.

When the congress ended I had the thrill of my life. There was an artistic gala in which a Cuban band sang melodies that I used to sing when I was a child, traditional songs that we have sung in colonies from Black Africa. I was moved, he said.

Grand Officer of the National Order of the Lion, the highest honor granted by the Senegalese government, the professor added that he cherishes great memories of Cuba: its houses, old cars, and especially its music.

This intellectual ratified the willingness to work with Cuba. We are convinced that the work we are carrying out in favor of black civilization is having an impact on all humankind, including the diaspora, he said.
