Description

This week  I had the pleasure of talking to Dr. Monique Y. Wells about her work literally unearthing African-American history in Paris. 

Monique is a visionary, changemaker, and steward of legacy. She is a native of Houston, Texas, and a 28-year resident of Paris. With a background in veterinary pathology and toxicology, her work today ranges from being a writer, speaker, and mentor to working as a travel professional. In all her work, she harnesses the power of education to change lives.  

This week was a little different as we had to record remotely, but I hope you enjoy the conversation, and learn as much as I did.

We spoke about why African-Americans are treated differently in France than at home in the US, the power of making this invisible history known, and why the idea of a colour-blind France is a dangerous myth.
