Global France Seminar

La Parisienne Démystifiée

A film by Rokhaya Diallo

Screening followed by a conversation with Rokhaya Diallo Filmmaker, writer and activist and Louis Massiah
Filmmaker and MLK Scholar.

The rest of the world imagines the typical Parisian woman as white, slim, and elegant, a bike-riding cigarette smoker dressed in stripes. Yet Paris is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world. Rokhaya Diallo dismantles the cliché by introducing us to today’s Parisian women in all their diversity.

This event is free and open to the public.

Presented by MIT’s Global France Seminar in partnership with History at MIT.
