Once again, Samuel knocked it out of the park. This was an excellent explanation of the who/what/when/why/how of the Parisian jazz age and how that morphed & joined up with the existentialists after WWII. I learned a lot and have new spots to visit & appreciate on my next trip to Paris!

This session was full of fascinating stories about what life was like for Black Americans living in Paris during the 1920s and what drove them to cross the Atlantic to find more freedom to express themselves. Samuel is super knowledgable and knew lots of details about the personal relationships between the different characters who were hanging around Paris in that era.
An expert in his field, passionate about sharing his knowledge and encouraging dialogue.
I knew most of the main players discussed but I learned about them in a much more nuanced way in this conversation. I found Samuel to be a lively instructor - and I really appreciated how he tied the content to questions of race that we are exploring more fully today. I would definitely do other classes with Samuel. In person or online.
