I hope that you find this site an informative resource for the events that have been occurring in Timbuktu, Mali.
Timbuktu, is a city close to my heart. During the time that I lived there, I grew to love its people, its culture, and even its weather. The arrival of war to this precious city has broken my heart.
As more and more articles appear in the news about the militant Islamist rule of Timbuktu, the memory of a culture of peace, tolerance, deep faith, and deep learning that was Timbuktu’s recent past seems to fade day by day. This website attempts to use an archive of the past to re-frame the present.
