About the Event

Why have so many prominent African Americans spent significant time in Paris? How is the history of Black people in France different from the history of Black people in the Americas? Is there institutional racism in France?

Dr. Monique Y. Wells, co-founder of Entrée to Black Paris™ and co-author of Paris Reflections: Walks through African-American Paris, will present African-American and African diaspora history and contemporary life with an emphasis on the 20th and 21st centuries. The talk is followed by a question and answer session.

Dr. Wells has delivered this lecture for Paris excursions organized for a score of university study abroad groups and African-American travelers. She has also given it for numerous institutions in France and the U.S. including the American Library in Paris, Barnard College, Howard University, Rice University, and the Alliance Française of San Francisco.
