Black France / France Noire: The History and Politics of by Trica Danielle Keaton,T. Denean Sharpley-Whiting,Tyler

By Trica Danielle Keaton,T. Denean Sharpley-Whiting,Tyler Stovall

In Black France / France Noire, students, activists, and novelists from France and the us tackle the untenable paradox on the center of French society. France's constitutional and criminal discourses don't realize race as a significant class. but the lived realities of race and racism are ever-present within the nation's supposedly race-blind society. The vaunted universalist rules of the French Republic are faraway from learned. Any declare of color-blindness is belied through reviews of anti-black racism, which render blackness a true and consequential historic, social, and political formation. individuals to this selection of essays reveal that blackness in France is much less an identification than a reaction to and rejection of anti-black racism. Black France / France Noire is a particular and demanding contribution to the more and more public debates on range, race, racialization, and multicultural intolerance in French society and beyond.
