Cafe Histoire – Black Americans in Paris in the 20th Century

March 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Names like Josephine Baker and Langston Hughes are iconic in both America and France. Since the early 20th century black artists and writers came to the cultural capital of Europe to experiment, learn and to enjoy freedom from the social pressures at home.

In a multi-media presentation and discussion, George Frederick will trace the famous and less-than-famous African-Americans who made a name for themselves–and for American culture–in 20th century Paris.

George is a member of the Alliance Francaise de Denver and passionate about all things French!

Lecture will be in English but slides will be in French

Please RSVP!
Free event!
