Most Popular Private Black Paris Walking Tours
The following are our three most popular private black Paris walking tours:
- Black Paris after World War II. This walk highlights the lives of writers such as Richard Wright, Chester Himes, and other literati. Learn about contemporary black French associations, the black heritage of the great French writer Alexandre Dumas, and the author of the French law that declares slavery a crime against humanity.
- On the Grandest of Avenues. Here you will see the Champs Elysées and the surrounding area, where entertainers such as Josephine Baker and Sidney Bechet worked and where James Baldwin led a march in support of Dr. King’s March on Washington.
- Black History in and around the Luxembourg Garden (women-centric). Explore the Luxembourg Garden and the surrounding area to learn about Christiane Taubira, the first black person to run for president in France, contemporary writer and sculptress Barbara Chase-Riboud, and performer/French Resistance member/civil rights activist Josephine Baker. View the statue that inspired painter Loïs Mailou Jones and discover the activities that Richard Wright’s granddaughter has organized to extend Wright’s legacy.
