Kévi Donat grew up both in France and in Martinique (French West Indies) in a multicultural environment and ultimately went on to become a graduate of Sciences Po and Public Health Management. Kévi offers an alternative and authentic vision of Paris. His tours tell the history of those who are usually invisible. From the Harlem Renaissance to the Négritude movement, the Senegalese soldiers to the Black GI’s fighting to liberate France, the fancy neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés to the African markets of Château-Rouge, his company, Le Paris Noir gives you both a historic and contemporary vision of the Black communities in Paris.
The logistics were a little off, and I was not notified until very late that the tour would have a time change from 10am to 3pm. But Kevi was fantastic and very knowledgeable. Fascinating, interesting tour with so much history and conversation.
