Les Marches de la Liberté with Rokhaya Diallo
Monday, March 31, 2014
from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM
The French-American Foundation will host a screening of Les Marches de la Liberté and reception with director, noted journalist, and activist Rokhaya Diallo. In her latest project, Diallo documents ten young Americans visiting France, the historical nation of human rights, to explore the issues of race and multiculturalism through a transatlantic lens. The film looks at the impact of the civil rights movement in each nation and what legacy those historic steps have left on today’s youth. Following the screening of the film, Diallo will discuss the new documentary and her work to promote racial equality and a multicultural society in France and abroad.
