Ever heard of La Goutte d’Or? It’s a neighbourhood to the east of Montmartre, and its name literally translates to “The Drop of Gold”.
This vibrant district is also known as Little Africa, and today’s podcast guest Jacqueline Ngo Mpii says it’s time you checked it out.
Jacqueline is running a crowdfunding campaign to finance a cultural hub in the centre of this neighbourhood where people can gather, hold events, and take part in some educational tourism.
Her company, Little Africa Travel, has been working for five years to elevate all things Afro and African in Paris – and now they’re ready to open a brick and mortar centre to help it all to thrive.
Here is the link to the campaign – jump in now. There are 130 backers so far and I’m one of them. Will you join me?
In today’s podcast episode, which you can listen to below, Jacqueline explains the campaign, but digs deeper into the area’s history and what you can find there.
The episode is below, but you can find it wherever podcasts exist.
Lastly, I’ve gathered ALL the extra information from the episode, like restaurant addresses, maps, and so on, and made a beautiful 8-page Scroll, which you can unlock right here if you’re a member (or wish to become one!)
