Le racisme en Amérique – talk

Scholar Dany Laferrière invites us on a walk through the long night streaked with violence and tenderness that goes from the cotton fields of the South to the factories of the North. It summons the memory of the blues of Bessie Smith, the contrasting figures of Abraham Lincoln and Charles Lynch, presents astonishing duets such as James Baldwin and William Styron, Eleanor Roosevelt and Angela Davis, Billie Holiday and Janis Joplin, Tupac Shakur and Nina Simone, and finally the sunny friendship of Toni Morrison and Maya Angelou. By thus pulling on the thread of racism, Dany Laferrière brings out a whole section of American culture. On Monday, January 16 at 18:30 at the Théâtre des Variétés. Organised by the Prince Pierre Foundation.
