The Second Edition of Noires AmériquesDélégation du Québec à Chicago Wednesday, February 2, 2022 to Wednesday, February 16, 2022
The Québec Government Office in Chicago was honored to support the second edition of Noires Amériques, facilitated by Montréal-born poet, Rodney Saint-Éloi. This series of three literary conversations allowed participants to meet three authors - Gisèle Pineau, Blaise Naala, and Kettly Mars – who took part in lively discussions that touched on their respective works, racism, diversity, otherness, and much more. Additionally, we were well represented by our Delegate, Mr. Mario Limoges, who opened the third conversation with Kettly Mars.
Thanks to this literary series, participants had the great honor of meeting some awe-inspiring Francophone authors in the Americas during Black History Month. Noires Amériques took place on Wednesday, February 2nd, 9th, and 17th at 5:00PM (central time), and all of the recordings of the conversations can be found HERE. All of the author’s works can also be found at the Bibliothèque des Amériques.
This event was organized by the Centre de la Francophonie des Amériques in partnership with the Alliance Français of Chicago, the publishing house Mémoire d’encrier, the American Association of Teachers in French, and the Ministry of International Relations and of the Francophonie.
