MAMADOU, THE MAGIC HEALER
The chiropractor with thousands of patients
Born in a small African village, Mamadou N'Diaye settled in the small town of Roubaix, in the North of France, in the 1930s where he became a local figure.
Mamadou started as a boxer and then became a famous chiropractor. In his office in a working-class neighborhood, he treated thousands of patients, including many Belgians who did not hesitate to cross the border to be treated.
He left behind 2 daughters whom he did not acknowledge and who are now trying to understand their own history through the testimonies of those who knew him.
