Resist 'leveling,' safeguard African culture, says Senegalese cardinal
CWN - July 12, 2012
Cardinal Adrien Sarr of Dakar, Senegal, has called for a concerted effort to preserve distinctive African cultures, in his introduction to a report for African bishops’ conferences.
"It is time to rediscover the richness of African cultures,” said Cardinal Sarr. “The time has come in Africa to say no to cultural leveling, a consequence of globalization."
