Join me tonight at 9PM as I discuss the Haitian community in France with Paris-based activist Fania Noel.
Fania Noel is currently the Director of Republique et Diversite, an anti-discrimination think tank in Paris. She just spent a few months on sabbatical in New York to do research towards a PhD in sociology on the links between race, gender, class and sexuality. During that time she was also in residence at Haiti Cultural Exchange. The 27 year old has two Haitian parents and defines herself as a Parisiano-Afro-Haitian rather than as Franco-Haitian. Though she is a French and Haitian dual citizen, she identifies more with Paris and its Afro-Caribbean community than as French.
She holds degrees in political science and sociology from Université Panthéon-Sorbonne.

Among other topics we discussed the implications of the French state's color-blindedness and what the term racism does and does not mean. Filmmaker Guetty Felin joined us about half-way through and stayed about 15 minutes.
