The Black Paris Weekend Tour

Friday 1st April 2016 – Sunday 4th April 2016

Black Paris Group

This new and exciting tour explores the rich Black History of Paris. We will undertake a city tour of Paris, highlights include many of the most famous landmarks in Paris. Paris was the centre of both literary and artistic movements and a colonial empire.After World War I, many African Americans remained or returned to Europe, and over the next three decades, created an expatriate community of musicians, entertainers, dancers, writers and entrepreneurs. Josephine Baker, Louis Armstrong, Langston Hughes, Sidney Bechet, Beau Jangles, and other African Americans brought the swinging, soulful sounds of American jazz music and the culture surrounding it to the banks of the Seine.

We will visit one of the world’s largest museums, the historic Louvre, and view the African presence in European art represented there and the collections of Egyptian antiquities.
