Abstract: The Association Mémoire Afrique (Africa Memory) was created by the historian and former First Lady of Mali, Adame Ba Konare. It is a reaction to the infamous speach by French president Sarkozy 2007 in Dakar, Senegal, in which he defended French colonialism and claimed, Africa had only little history. As a counterstatement, Ba Konaré and other historians (from African and some other countries) published a book. The website documents the event with statements, journal articles and biographies of participating historians. Also see: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discours_de_Dakar. [editors ilissAfrica]
