Leopold Sedar Senghor
Birth: Oct. 9, 1906
Death: Dec. 20, 2001

Writer and politician. Senghor served as the president of Senegal from 1960 to 1980. Having achieving major success as a poet, politician, and intellectual, Senghor had a unique identity among African leaders. His development from tribal member in Senegal, to scholar in France, to head of the government back in Senegal made him a symbol of Africa's shift from colonial domination to self- determination. (bio by: Warrick L. Barrett)
