Histoire de la télévision en Afrique noire francophone, des origines à nos jours

This spring, Éditions Karthala published Histoire de la télévision en Afrique noire francophone, des origines à nos jours by Tidiane Dioh, with a foreword by Hervé Bourges. According to the publisher, the work endeavors to trace nearly 50 years of television history in French-speaking black Africa, a vast geographical expanse of more than 10 million square kilometers that is home to nearly 217 million people residing in 17 countries. The author recounts the exceptional saga of the small screen in French-speaking black Africa from three perspectives, that of researcher/educator, journalist, and international bureaucrat in charge of a media support program for Southern Africa.
