Timbuktu, MALI

Abdel Kader Haidara looks at his family's ancient manuscripts that he is trying to preserve in his home. In the past few years, with funding from different organizations including the Ford Foundation, thousands of the manscripts are being recovered, stored, preserved and studied. Sadly, many of them have been lost or severley damaged but for those that remain it is a maginificent reminder of Africa's literary history.
