Let’s Talk Black Paris

As long as Europe opens up for us, our group will be going. The new dates are APRIL 15 – 22, 2021. I’ve been going to Paris annually since 1983 and the fact that there is a ban has been a very bitter pill to swallow. Nonetheless, my focus is on 2021 and I so look forward to escorting my group of 25 to the “City of Light”, showing them Paris on the black side and showing them all that has made this beautiful city what it is.
One of the highlights of our tour is spending a full day with Ricki Stevenson, owner and founder of Black Paris Tours. She recently did a very informative interview now on YouTube, of which I’d love to share with you.
You are invited to a screening of Episode #7 of the Griot, where we catch up with Ricki Stevenson, the Founder of the award winning, internationally acclaimed, Black Paris Tours…now celebrating its 22nd year of operation
This lover of Black history turned her passion into a culturally, histororically rich Paris experience that attracts travelers from around the world! Ricki and her crew of scholar-guides (Nawo Crawford, Miguel Guerra and Dedie Stevenson-Bailey) offer Full day tours or two-thirds day tours providing insight into the significant contributions made by Black Americans in France! With each tour they remind us of the importance of knowing who we are, where we come from and the crucial importance of sharing our stories with the next generation.
Check out this newest episode of the ‘Griot: Power in Narratives’, where we use history to help us understand current events and the pressing issues of race, class, gender, and popular culture.Tamara Gibbs~
