About the Talk:

The long standing presence of Islam in the Senegambia region have had profound influence on its diverse peoples. The steady but significant acceptance of Islam among the region's population increasingly brought the region into a wider intellectual world extending into northern Africa and the Middle East. For many centuries, Senegambian Muslims had been conducting the hajj and traveling to Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to study Islam. However, the scholarship on Islam in the Senegambia region is concentrated largely on the Sufi figures in the northern portion of the region, ignoring other lesser-known transformational figures such as Alhagie Baba Jallow (c.1890-1996) whose father, Cherno Omar Jallow, founded one of the most important centers of Islamic learning in Gambia's north bank region in the late 19th century. This will be centered on the contributions of this family to the development of Islam in the region.
