Abstract:

This paper looks at the debate over slavery (its impact, France's responsabilities...) in contemporary France and examines how it informs the situation of Blacks in this country. In spite of a long presence, it is only recently that Blacks have gained visibility in France. In 2001, a law was passed by Parliament, recognizing slavery as a crime against humanity. Although curricula were to be changed and adress more precisely the slave period and France's role, they still remain largely silent on the question. However when looking at Black acitivists, popular music, and Black media to name but a few, they consider this debate as crucial to voicing their opining and assert their presence in France.
