Le paris Noir: Josephine Baker, from dancer to icon
Online conference via Zoom | In ENGLISH
Free | Donation suggested 

On November 30th 2021, Josephine Baker will enter the Pantheon monument. In this “Temple des grands hommes” (Temple of great men), she will take her place next to Voltaire, Victor Hugo, Aimé Césaire and Marie Curie. Through this event, we not only honor the Roaring Twenties and the Jazz movement, but also the civil rights movement and the Resistance to Nazi occupation. What is the significance of Josephine Baker entering the Pantheon as the first Black woman in today’s France?

As he takes us along the streets of Paris from Rue Fontaine, the Folie Bergères to the Pantheon, Kévi Donat invites us to trace the journey of this exceptional woman. Follow the guide!
