BIRAGO DIOP, CONTEUR (“Birago Diop, Storyteller”) offers a portrait of the famous Senegalese writer and poet. While young writers of Antillean and African descent chose poetry to express the search for their identity within the Negritude movement, Birago Diop adopted African folklore as a mode of expression.
