“Siggi Dimanche,” gives new voice to cultural curiosity with an emphasis on the tremendous contributions of distinguished scholars, artists, writers, musicians, and filmmakers representing Francophone Africa and its French speaking African Diaspora. An afternoon of French/English readings of classical and contemporary Francophone African and African Diasporian literature, a dazzling multimedia presentation, music, film and of course, a light culinary delight from one of our Francophone African countries provides an historic platform to recognize preeminent women and men of Francophone African descent who have been instrumental in the sculpting of our world.
