Film Screening, Book Presentation, and Q&A with Julia Browne, Associate Producer "Paris Noir: African Americans in the City of Light"

Celebrate Black History Month at the Blockson Collection with a screening of Paris Noir: African Americans in the City of Light, a one-hour documentary by Blue Lion Films (2016). This film tells the outstanding story of pioneering men and women who found liberté, egalité and fraternité (freedom, equality, and brotherhood) abroad. For contemporary audiences, the film provides a bridge to realize how their achievements affected civil rights across the world, and the value of Black entrepreneurship within Paris’ international community.
Join us after the screening for a Q&A session with associate producer and Black Paris expert Julia Browne. In 1994, Browne founded Walking The Spirit Tours, the first ever Black Paris-focused tours.
