Café YéYé - Radio Interview

Last month I had the honor of being interviewed by artist and Francophile Marian Hayes (a.k.a. Yeye Lynvonne) of WCSU Radio in Chicago. I was in Boston at the time and was attending the first full day of a conference, still jet lagged from the overseas flight from a few days before. I had scheduled the interview during a break from the conference, but events conspired to make this impossible. With much persistence, we finally had our chat a couple of hours later.

Marian first traveled to France with Chicago State University four years ago for a study abroad program in Nice. She dreams of coming to Paris and reached out to me because an artist friend of hers gave her a copy of my book Paris Reflections: Walks through African-American Paris.

In our interview, we talk about why I moved to Paris, Discover Paris! tours, the Black Experience in Paris, and more.
