1939-1960 History of West Africa





Senegal Independent, since 1960



In 1959, Mali and Senegal formed a confederation; it fell apart in 1960, when Senegal declared independence, under President LEOPOLD SEDAR SENGHOR. By 1963, Senghor had assumed a virtual dictatorship. Senghor was francophone. The country suffered from the Sahel drought of 1972-1974, from the oil crisis and from declining world market prices for peanuts.
In 1981, a loose federation with THE GAMBIA was formed (until 1989).
