August 2010 - An Interview with Dante James
An award-winning, independent filmmaker, Dante James recently wrote and directed Harlem in Montmartre, a documentary that traces the phenomenal development of jazz in France from the end of WWI to the end of WWII. We had the opportunity to interview him shortly after the presentation of his film at the France Noire/Black France Film Festival in Paris. Read our article in this month's Paris Insights.
One of Discover Paris' most popular walking tours is called Black History in and around the Luxembourg Garden.
Explore the Luxembourg Garden and learn about the histories of such luminaries as Richard Wright, Alexandre Dumas, Victor Séjour, and Henry O. Tanner. Learn about the myth of the black Statue of Liberty, and see the contemporary sculpture that commemorates the abolition of slavery in the French colonies.
The tour, led by a knowledgeable and experienced local guide, involves about 2 hours of walking. Black History in and around the Luxembourg Garden is a regularly-scheduled walking tour.
