Happy Birthday to the Entrée to Black Paris Blog!

Greetings everyone,

I am pleased to announce that the official launch of the Entrée to Black Paris blog took place one year ago today!

We kicked off this online adventure with a posting about Franco-Senegalese chef Rougia Dia, who presides over the kitchen at the posh, 7th-arrondissement restaurant Petrossian. We call her the new Black Pearl of Paris!

Since then, we’ve featured people, places, and events that reflect the vibrant scene that contemporary black life in Paris represents. We’ve also acknowledged historical black figures with the intent to keep their memory alive as a source of inspiration for those of us who are here and those who will follow.

Here are just a few photos to remind you of various postings:

San Francisco Jazz Man in Paris

The Spirit of Africa at Parc de la Villette

Black Women on French Television

Caribbean Rhythms and Senegalese Cuisine

Remembering Chester Himes

We are particularly pleased to bring you the Black Paris Profiles™ series and our Art and Food Pairing™ series, and hope that you are enjoying these special features of the blog.

Thanks for your support over the past year! We want to hear from you on this special day. Leave your comments beneath this posting on what you like about the blog, what you dislike about it, and what you’d like to see included in future postings.


Entrée to Black Paris!™ is a Discover Paris! blog.
