Paris tour shows how black people helped shape France

Kevi Donat's tour around Paris comes with a twist: it celebrates the unsung black people who helped shape French history.

"People often imagine that their guide will be a white man wearing a striped sweater and a beret," Kevi says.

From WW2 resistance fighters to the writers who spoke out against French colonialism, his tour tries to challenge the perception of what it means to be French.
