THIS STORY IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION. MORE SOON! 


First Generation is an on-going project about the first generation of Afro-French women of France.

In African immigration’s history of France, familiar reunifications happened between 1975 and 1980, making the young African descendants born in the country, the first Afro-French generation.

The project aims to speak about this national identity under construction through the life of these women and tries to understand how they are dealing with the incipient reference of their mixed origins while under a culture deeply anchored in its historical tradition.

"I am French at the moment, but I want to defend all the history of Africa, I want to move forward within this African history and also to engage in the memory of our past history", Dala, 28.
