The First World Festival of Negro Arts, Dakar 1966

Edited by David Murphy

Liverpool University Press

Postcolonialism Across the Disciplines LUP

  • This is the first full-length volume to engage with the 1966 Dakar festival (other books have devoted a chapter to the festival as part of a wider discussion of African culture/1960s).
  • The book draws together research by scholars who have already published important articles/books in this area (e.g. Andrew Apter, Elizabeth Harney, Tsitsi Jaji) alongside work by emerging scholars.
  • By also focusing on the legacies of the 1966 festival, the volume will be of interest to those working on African cultural festivals more widely rather than simply those interested in the 1966 event.
