Senegal's first journalist, now 82 rainy seasons old, Annette M'baye d'Erneville has been very progressive, compared with the development of her country. Militant from the first hours of the woman's emancipation cause, she has been a pioneer activist and anti-conformist. "Capturing a generation of pioneers who are our mothers, capturing my mother!" Born in Sokone in 1926 as a child of the colonial period, she is "torn" by her education "à vieille France" and her love for her country of origin and Serer tradition. During her university education in Paris in 1947, she immersed herself in the intellectual circles of the 1950s and met those who built the independence throughout Africa. There, she founded a family, recorded her first radio programs, earned a journalism diploma. In 1957, she returned to Senegal to serve her country.
