|Book cover La France Noire|
In the light of Black Britain (2007) by Paul Gilroy, "Le Paris noir" (Hazan, 2001) or Black Paris (2007), this book will be a unique reference of three centuries of blacks in France, from all communities and all over the world for three centuries of shared history.
The books is also part a program by the research group ACHAC (Association pour la connaissance de l'histoire de l'Afrique contemporaine), a program which is at the crossroads of several anniversaries: the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the war in Algeria, the 65th anniversary of the departmentalisation of the "old colonies" (Antilles, French Guiana and Réunion), the 80th anniversary of the French Colonial Exhibition (1931) and the 10th anniversary of the law Taubira (2001), a law which recognises slavery as a crime against humanity.
