Read, watch, and listen to fight racism [fr]
In light of recent conversations on the question of race in the United States and in France, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy has curated a list of antiracist resources. These resources examine the political and social history of our two countries, as well as the motivations behind and necessity of the movement.
The second episode of season 3 of our podcast The Thing About France features Thomas Chatterton Williams, a Paris-based African-American writer and the author of Self Portrait in Black and White: Unlearning Race. Albertine’s recommended reading will guide you through the concepts of antiracism and identity struggles, while French Streams has carefully selected films that examine these issues in both the French and American contexts. We also encourage you to watch (or rewatch) our conferences on the subject of identity, “Every Name in the Streets” and “Art, Race et Representation” presented during the Festival Albertine curated by Ta-Nehisi Coates.
