Abstract:Toward the end of the 1920s, the articulate among the Negroes living in France held that the Negroes of the colonies were in a position to make significant contributions to French culture: the Negroe's soul would mate with the genius of France and give birth to a creole culture. In early 1932 doubts arose as to this so-called brown solution and a shift to a black cultural consciousness took place, which developed into a body of thought called negritude. This article examines the background to this shift. Notes.
