Celeste Day Moore

Assistant Professor of History Celeste Day Moore traveled to Dakar, Senegal, to participate in Cinquantenaire du 1er Festival Mondial des Arts Nègres, the 50th anniversary conference celebrating the first Pan-African Festival of Black Arts, on Nov. 10.

Moore was a member of a panel focused on the impact of the festival on cultural expression. She presented a paper, “La Traduction de la musique afro-américaine en Afrique,” that revealed the work of cultural intermediaries in introducing African-American music to audiences in Francophone West Africa in the early-to-mid 1960s.

The $400 million campaign marked the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the College's history.
