October 11 – 20, 2014

Black Paris and a Taste of France give you a cultural experience like no other. Join us in celebrating the best of Black Paris, the Bordeaux wine region, and a glimpse into the life of the legendary Josephine Baker. We start in Paris with a guided walking and bus tour that retraces the illustrious lives and achievements of Black Americans. Our tours will be provided by Walking the Spirit Tours of Black Paris and they focus on popular areas – The Latin Quarter/St. Germain-des-Pres, Champs-Elysées and Lower Montmartre. Tour 1 (Voices and Visions in Exile) walks through neighborhoods of writers Richard Wright, James Baldwin, Chester Himes, artists Henry O.Tanner, Lois Mailou Jones and Beboppers Miles Davis and Bud Powell. On Tour 2 (The Entertainers) we relive the excitement of Black Montmartre of the 1920s and 1930s where jazz flourished alongside African art, decadence, and black entrepreneurs. You will leave Paris with a real feel and intimate knowledge of how Black Americans lived in Paris yesterday and today. Black Paris Video
