London Borough of Haringey Black History Month Programme
Presentation/Film Screening: 'Black Paris: Race and Culture in the City of Light'
This informative and inspirational presentation by Black History Studies tells the story of the African Americans who left America to create the Jazz age in Paris between the First and Second World Wars. After peace was signed at Versailles, many African Americans remained in Europe rather than return to the brutal segregation and racism of America. Over the next two decades, they formed an expatriate community of musicians, entertainers and entrepreneurs, primarily congregating in Paris' hilly Montmarte neighbourhood. This event celebrates the 110th birthday of the dancer, singer and actress Josephine Baker. Donations are encouraged and gratefully accepted.
