Dr. Sharon Austin will offer the African Americans in Paris Spring Break course in March 2018. The course will introduce students to three groups Black Americans who have traveled to Paris: 1) political persons, 2) academics, and 3) culture bearers. These themes will be explored via geographic visitations to the arrondissements (districts) where Black Americans experienced world wars, Pan‐Africanist movement, study abroad, writer’s life, café culture, and Jazz Age club life.  Students will visit several historic sites that are of significance to African Americans in Paris.
