Senegal remembers poet-president Leopold Senghor. I don’t want to be frivolous and I know this should be about his poetry (which is awesome), but I would like to point out that he was a member of the Academie Francaise. Elected to Chair No. 16 in 1983 to be precise. He’s one of 700 immortals. No kidding.
