Best Little Senegal (2008)

116TH STREET AND MALCOLM X BOULEVARD

Yes, a taste of West Africa on the West Side of Harlem: 116TH STREET AND MALCOLM X BOULEVARD is the center of a growing Senegalese commercial district and community that speaks Wolof and French, serves thiebou dieune, and maintains homeland traditions in community-building and hospitality. Rent Little Senegal (2001, directed by Rachid Bouchareb), a sort of Roots in reverse, for an illustrated tour.
