Black Paris - Myth of Colorblind France


Monique Y. Wells, co-founder of Discover Paris!™ and co-author of Paris Reflections: Walks through African-American Paris (with Christiann Anderson) presents an overview of African-American history with an emphasis on the 20th and 21st centuries. Learn about statesmen and soldiers as well as artists and entertainers, and discover the story behind the myth of a colorblind France. The talk is followed by a question and answer period.

Wells has given this presentation for excursions in Paris sponsored by the National Association of Black Social Workers and by African-American travel organizations, for the American Library in Paris, and for numerous institutions in the U.S. These include Barnard College, Howard University, Rice University, and the Alliance Française San Francisco.
