For more than a century, Black artists, authors and musicians have traveled to Paris to liberate themselves from the racism of the United States. What made these artistic innovators choose France? And to what extent was (and is) France colorblind? Myth of a Colorblind France explores these questions by looking at the lives and careers of renowned artists who emigrated to Paris, including Josephine Baker, James Baldwin, Richard Wright, Beauford Delaney, Augusta Savage, and Henry Ossawa Tanner.
