Monique Y. Wells

Monique Y. Wells and Christiann Anderson have written Paris Reflections: Walks through African-American Paris to help readers recognize and explore the vibrant and enduring legacy of African-Americans in Paris, a city where the achievements of African-Americans have long been realized, recognized, and celebrated. They lead actual and arm chair travelers alike on walking tours through distinct areas of Paris that feature African-Americans and their activities in art, literature, science, business, sport, social reform, and other fields from the nineteenth century to the present.

Wells, a native of Houston, Texas, lives and works in Paris in the cosmetic industry. She and her husband own the travel planning service Discover Paris! -- Personalized Itineraries for Independent Travelers. Discover Paris! has recently collaborated with a major American university to create a course on African-American history, culture, and contemporary life. This is the second book for Anderson and Wells -- previously, Wells authored and Anderson illustrated Food for the Soul - A Texas Expatriate Nurtures Her Culinary Roots in Paris.
