Montmartre & Black French & American history

Our second Wednesday series begins on November 8 and will focus on another topic of great importance and current debate in both France and the United States, modern Black history.

 

This series of four lectures will cover the history of Slavery in France, writers of the Harlem Renaissance in New York and Paris, an exhibition of African-American art at the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia and the impact of the French African colonies and tribal art on French Art Deco.
