A short bus ride takes us to beautiful Parc Monceau to follow in the footsteps of Frederick Douglass, Dr. W.E.B. Dubois, Henry O. Tanner, Mary Church Terrell, Ida B. Wells, Carter G. Woodson, Countee Cullen, Bessie Coleman, Langston Hughes, and Mary McCloud Bethune. We stroll two blocks to stand before the monument recognizing France's abolition of the African slave trade in the West Indies and recalling the exploits of Napoleon's most famous Black general. Steps away, another statue is dedicated to the General’s son, Alexandre Dumas... the most famous French writer in history. A third statue, recalls the literary achievements of his son, the dramatist, Alexandre Dumas.
With the Haitian Embassy overlooking this square, you’ll hear the story of Toussaint L’Ouverture, who led the successful 1791 revolt ... making Haiti the first free Black Republic in the new world. Another bus ride takes us past the building where author Dumas lived, then past the church dedicated to the African Saint Augustine -- a founder of the Catholic Church! Next we’ll see the Church where Josephine Baker was given a state funeral April 15th, 1975. We’ll pause at Place Concorde where the guillotine took the heads of thousands during the French Revolution, and where the US Embassy is headquartered. Place Concorde is home to the oldest monument in Paris today, the African Obelisk .... an astronomical device used to chart the sun and the stars at the Temple of Thebes in Luxor.
