Ousmane Sagara

Ousmane Sagara is a journalist based in Bamako, the capitol city of the West African Nation of Mali. He worked alongside the Alabama Public Radio news team as an exchange journalist in 2016. When APR launched a major project to produce coverage of the fiftieth anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, junior, news director Pat Duggins contacted Sagara, via Facebook messenger, and invited him to report for APR from Mali on how his nation feels about King, fifty years after his death.
