THE LIMITS OF CIVILIZING, 1936–1940
The Conclusion reflects on missionary and administrative goals between 1880 and the late 1930s by examining tensions that were laid bare in both missionary and administrative civilizing rhetoric in the late 1930s. It looks briefly at how the Popular Front’s spirit of reform revealed the contradictions of earlier colonial administrations, yet also failed to lead to lasting reforms. Similarly, the Vatican’s attempts to put an African prelate in charge of the church in the Casamance in the late 1930s exposed French missionaries’ racism and their unwillingness to cede control of the Church to locals.
