|The memorial nights were aimed at three cities, those closest to Hussein Shariffe's heart, Khartoum, Cairo and London. The idea was for the nights to be a place for exhibition of the work of Hussein Shariffe, they would have similar content but with different commentators and speakers according to the country.
Indeed three successful nights were held in:
- Khartoum - the event was hosted by Ahfad University for Women on the 21st March 2005.
- Cairo - the event was hosted by the Office of African Studies, American University in Cairo on the 19th May 2005.
- London - the event was hosted by the Refugee Studies Program, University of East London on the 10th July 2005.
