when did the immigration movement from Senegal to France take place? In what time period and what happened then? ?

Basically, what did they have to experience to get to France and how easy was it for them to leave their county due to the circumstances they were experiencing in that period of time? 

How many people left at once?

    From the late 19th to the early 20th centuries, the Senegal River valley experienced a great deal of climate change. Because there were few industries in Senegal, people emigrated to France to find jobs. The first wave of Senegalese immigration to France took place, like other sub-Saharian waves, around 1964.

    After losing about 6 million men in World War One, the French brought in workers from the colonies, just as the British would do after WW2.
