In May 1968, Senegal was the site of a large event which seriously threatened the regime of the new independent state. Like their peers who shook Prague, Chicago, Paris and other cities, the youth of Dakar led a dynamic protest and mobilised locally against the regime called ‘neocolonial’ and the continuing French presence in the country. Omar Gueye revisits and explores the local Senegalese social movement in relation to the global trend of May 1968.
