In my family, one of the last guardians of genealogy is my grandmother Penda Diogo SARR. According to President and poet Senghor, the only dead man is the one whose name is no longer pronounced. She came to our house while my mother was on her deathbed and a strong relationship developed between us. This Word is threatened. In our family, we are the second generation to read and write. Who will carry on singing the praises of the lineage? In order to fight against the destruction of ancestors’ Word, I decided to switch from oral tradition to a videotaped tradition.
