Valdiodio N'Diaye, the heir of a lost kingdom and the Home Minister in Senegal was a mythical figure who had to face his fate in 1958 in Dakar when confronted to General de Gaulle. There, in court,he expressed the wills of all black people in Africa : "We want independance, African unity, and confederation". But in 1962, two years afterSenegal gained its independence, Valdiodio N'Diaye fate was going to a tragic end. Accused of plotting against the State, this African leader who had been working for freedom and democratic values found himself in jail for several dozens of years. Today, Western Africa's biggest secondary school bears his name and young Senegalese compare him to Nelson Mandela. One could wonder why African elites had to be eleminated systematically at the moment in this time. Rare audio-visual documents, rare archives and decreasing number of witnesses recall this search for independence and Valdiodio N'Diaye personality.
