About Me


 France is linking the black experience globally.


France Francois is a multi-faceted writer, human rights activist and advocate for people of color around the globe. Passionate about foreign aid, immigration, and how U.S. policy affects developing countries, she has worked for such organizations as the Inter-American Development Bank, the International Organization for Migration and the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund. Most notably, as the founder of Rights for All in the Dominican Republic, she organized an international coalition to lobby against human rights violations in the Dominican Republic. Her sought after commentary and policy perspective has been featured on MSNBC, CNN, Huffington Post, Ebony and in the Washington Post. 

France is truly a citizen of the world. An incessant world traveler and former ex-patriat, she once left the policy world of Washington to spend two years living abroad in Panama. She now interviews interesting people around the world on her site In Cultured Company, offers insights for traveling deeper, and provides much needed social commentary linking the black experience globally .
