Despite its rich history and significant impact, black culture is not well known in France. This unique and original tour shows you a different side to Paris.
This guided walk is inspired by, and a tribute to, some of the men and women who transformed Paris. Through their stories, we gain an understanding of different cultural and political developments that had an impact on the city.
The tour takes in the Latin Quarter and St Germain. Your guide will recount the life stories, illustrated by numerous anecdotes, of key intellectual, artistic and political figures from Africa, the Caribbean and the USA.
From the Middle Ages right through to the street demonstrations of the 60s, the Left Bank has always been at the cutting edge of artistic innovation and political debate. You will learn about the négritude movement, the history of jazz, and the explosion of black culture (in music, literature and the cinema) while strolling through this iconic area of Paris.
Your guide Kévi Donat has a passion for history and urban culture and is particularly interested in the origins of migration to Paris. This guided walk is the result of his considerable research but, more importantly, of his love for this rich and diverse cosmopolitan city. Kévi also offers a guided walk in Paris from Pigalle to Barbès.
This guided tour is conducted in English.
