An amazing journey through history of the expression of Black culture which spread from Paris to the world. I am a jazz lover so the incredible story of the origins of Jazz Music in Paris and France were an unearthing of Jazz history. Even some jazz aficionados were unaware of this little known rich Jazz Heritage.

The history of the African American experience in Paris is a historical journey that is must be shared by everyone.
I encourage you to give this DVD to friends and family.
