Black France
A three-part series looking at the history of France’s black community and their long struggle for recognition.

Between one and five million French citizens claim African or Caribbean heritage. These numbers are, however, estimates, as population censuses do not recognise race.

For over a century, black immigrants, though never officially identified as different, were treated as ’others’.

Even today, of France’s 577 members of parliament, only five are black.

This three-part series tells the story of blacks in France - a long history of segregation, racism, protest, violence, culture and community building - from the turn of the 20th century until the present day.

Douze ans après les attentats du 11-Septembre, la chaîne d’information qatarie lance, mardi 20 août, son antenne américaine. Mais, pour une partie de l’opinion publique, son nom reste associé à l’antiaméricanisme, voire au terrorisme.
