Episode Info

S. Epatha Merkerson narrates the story of the jazz age in Paris, which flourished between the First and Second World Wars because some black U.S. veterans remained in Europe rather than returning to segregated America. Included: archival material on such legends as James Reese Europe, Josephine Baker, Sidney Bechet, Ada "Bricktop" Smith, Eugene Bullard and Django Reinhardt. Inspired by historian William A. Shack's book "Harlem in Montmartre."
