Dear Dr Awolowo Dosumu,
Greetings from the IAI. I just wanted to drop you a quick note
thanking you warmly for your attendance and speech at our jointly
organised event at SOAS yesterday. In particular, I was highly
appreciative of the attention you paid to Insa's book in your
discussions of Awolowo. You created quite a stir and helped bring an
audience to the IAI/SOAS that we could not have reached without your
support. And we even sold out of the books available at the event! So
all round a success, I think.
I do hope we can stay in touch, and perhaps there will be
opportunities for future collaborations - although it will be a while
before there is another centenary!
I was also very interested to hear about the work of the Foundation,
and wish you all the best with that.
