Infosheet: Mali at 60

On the occasion of the Africa 2020 year, the ASCL has created Infosheets about the countries that became independent in 1960. Of the seventeen colonies gaining independence in that year, Mali was the third one: on June 20th. Mali had been a French colony from 1892, as Soudan français, and part of Afrique-Occidentale française (French West Africa) until independence in 1960.
