An author from Afrique-Martinique-France
writing in French
[Return to French Page originale en français]
Nathalie M'Dela-Mounier lives in Brittany, France, were she has been a teacher
and librarian for 15 years. She taught also in Côte d'Ivoire and elsewhere. Looking "white" and perceived as such by others, she is however
attached to her condition of a woman of mixed origin, both culturally and
genetically. Like millions of people of varied complexions, she considers
herself a child of the encounter of the white trader with that mythical, yet very
real ancestor, who was uprooted from Africa and sold as a slave in America.
Short of being able to put a face or a name to the individuals who are her
ancestors, she belives in the power of the word and collective memory in order
to transmit historical truth to forthcoming generations.
