Celebrating Lamin Sanneh

Few historians have played a bigger role as Prof Sanneh in helping the world understand Africa, Africans, African Christianity and African Islam. He was an astute scholar, a brilliant writer, and an insightful teacher. I had several occasions to meet him and chat. Invariably, these casual meetings in the corridors, over meals or in-between conference sessions turned into thoughtful encounters where Prof Sanneh challenged my thinking on one issue or other.
I will cherish his memory as one who encouraged high-quality scholarship among Africans. In our most recent chat in Nairobi in 2018, over dinner at the scenic Lukenya Getaway, he once again spoke of the need for a retelling of the unique aspects of recent African Christian history.
I leave you with a video clip taken at the Yale-Edinburgh group meeting.
RIP Lamin Sanneh 1972-2019
