We have a really cool segment submitted by a student who spoke with students and alumni who traveled to Brazil either through MISTI or Fulbright. But first, we’re going to pick up where we left off on the last episode where Brigid and Ari interviewed Kevi Donat. If you don’t know, Kevi is a French tour guide that mainly focuses on the often overlooked black history of Paris. He leads his guests through the streets and offers an alternative narrative to what may be a typical understanding of Parisian history.
In the second part of this interview they go beyond history and really get into the contemporary inequities that manifest in France whether it’s the racial wealth gap, white supremacist protests, and how this idea of freedom from religion, which is popular in France, can hurt black and brown communities. What is most interesting about the rest of this interview is that they discuss how the US perception of France differs from the reality, and how charged racial discourse has actually “globalized” and even was inspired by what’s happening here in the United States. I think it’s really important to point that out when we talk about racial justice.
