Summary

Paris Noir tells the fascinating history of American expatriates who chose to live in Paris in the twentieth century. An avant-garde and tightly knit community of black American writers, painters, musicians, and political exiles discovered that Paris gave them the artistic, racial, and emotional freedom denied to them back home. Paris Noir describes the wary negotiations between this unique community and the ongoing social, political, and artistic changes affecting black Americans, an exchange that continues to this day.
