Kévi Donat grew up both in France and in Martinique (French West Indies) in a multicultural environment and ultimately went on to become a graduate of Sciences Po and Public Health Management. He was supposed to become a director of nursing homes, but quickly realized that wasn’t really his thing. Kévi offers an alternative and authentic vision of Paris. His tours tell the history of those who are usually invisible. From the Harlem Renaissance to the Négritude movement, the Senegalese soldiers to the Black GI’s fighting to liberate France, the fancy neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés to the African markets of Château-Rouge, his company, Le Paris Noir gives you both a historic and contemporary vision of the Black communities in Paris.
