Inspired by the work and teachings of the late Sorbonne University Professor Michel Fabre, Julia Browne created in 1994 this fascinating series of Black history walking tours. Tying together a love of history, literature, and Paris, she turned Walking The Spirit Tours into a mission.
Today, all Walking The Spririt Tour guides are African-American Parisians selected for their expertise, their great storytelling skills, and their intimate knowlege of the neighborhoods they tour in.
Julia is also a prize-winning writer and journalist, and a speaker on the Black presence in Paris. Guide Ealy Mays is a renowned visual artist
