A few of my Parisian friends sent in some pictures of the boycott of the Guerlain store on the Champs Elysees. One said, “Lots of people came out; no violence. People brought back their Guerlain products. The store was closed, which made them lose a lot of money for a Saturday, and people are trying to come back next Saturday. It’s a real opportunity for a Black movement….because for many years Black people [in France] have been insulted and were pretty passive about it. This time a lot of people came together of all ages.”
