Black Paris Profiles™: Richard Allen

Richard Allen is one of the “old school” African-American expatriates living in Paris today. Businessman and singer, photographer and filmmaker, the breadth and depth of his experiences in the City of Light are impossible to chronicle in a mere blog posting! His activities in all of these arenas are the source of his unique outlook on life in Paris.

Richard Allen always liked French. Though he grew up listening to Hispanic Spanish, he was not really attracted to this language. But when he heard his grade school classmate, Gabriel Racine, speak French, he decided that he wanted to learn it. True to his passion, he went on to earn a B.A. in French and Economics at Morehouse College and moved to France to learn more after completing his military service in Belgium. He arrived in Paris on 11 June 1972, enrolled at the Sorbonne, and studied for two years there.
