Around of Soumahoro’s book “The triangle and the hexagon: Reflections on a black identity”, we look at our place in Western space by looking at the path of Maboula that starts from her to relate and confront the world around her. In the middle of the month of the Black History Month imported into France by Maboula Soumahoro, we will look back on the contributions and contributions of black women and men in history and in our present. As we approach the françafricaines celebrations coming very soon in France, we also wanted to take a look at the places of our diaspora to better understand it and to understand the reasons why this diaspora attracts the attention of many people not always well-meaning towards it. This “Diaspora” section will be the first of its kind and we hope it will, throughout the year. Finally, we will get to know new faces and their stories.
