The group arrived via train in Paris this morning and they were met by Porter’s faculty member and Director of Inclusion and Equity, Susan Martell. Susan is joining the class to help facilitate the theme of the group’s work in Paris around the complexities of race and identity in France currently.
Early this morning, Porter’s students and faculty gathered at the train station in Rennes to bid our hosts adieu. Lycée Saint-Martin faculty members M. Février, Mme. Thomas, and Mme. Bodin guided our group aboard the high speed train (le TGV) and waved goodbye as we departed the station.

Students will devote some of the two-hour ride to journaling about the impact Rennes has had on us.

We plan to arrive in Paris for lunch, so look forward to tonight’s post on our first afternoon in La Ville Lumière.
