No 17  (2010)

This issue is dedicated to our late friend, colleague, and brother, Professor John Conteh-Morgan, one of the founding Editorial Board members of West Africa Review. Even though Professor John Conteh-Morgan passed away in March 2008, our dedication of this issue is an effort to keep his legacy alive, and to celebrate his immense intellectual achievements in the field. He was an Iroko of knowledge. A true pioneer and a champion of all things good. We will sorely miss him.


Tribute to Late Dr. John Conteh-Morgan
Nkiru Nzegwu

This Issue 17 of West Africa Review (WAR) is dedicated to our late friend, colleague, and brother, Professor John-Conteh Morgan, a founding Editorial Board member of this journal. While it is important to mourn his departure, it is equally important to celebrate his life and wealth of accomplishment in a citadel of knowledge production, known for rarely remembering, or fully appreciating the labor and work ethics of migrants that the citadel’s ideology devalues. Today, is not a day of battle with the citadel. Rather, it is a day of celebration and appreciation of one who plied his trade in the pastures of knowledge, striving for global understanding through teaching, learning, and caring.
