Malian Activist El Hadj Djitteye on “An African Perspective on American Democracy”

February 17, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

In conversation with Peter Chilson (English), Malian activist El Hadj Djitteye will discuss the ongoing conflicts in Mail and the West African Sahel, and what it has been like as an African and Americanophile to watch the unfolding political crisis in the United States. Hadj is a Program Manager for the organization Conflict Stability and Security Fund at the Embassy of the United Kingdom in Mali, as well as the founder of the Timbuktu Center for Peace. His extensive experience working with youth and peace movements across sub-Saharan Africa and other countries throughout the world has garnered him recognition as a global change maker. Co-hosted by the WSU Pullman Common Reading Program and the Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service.
