This chapter analyzes the treatment of African migrants in the works of Calixthe Beyala. It examines the representation of Paris in the eyes of Beyala's migrant characters and explores the personal trajectories of Beyala's migrants as they attempt to reconcile competing sets of cultural expectations in France. It also suggests that it is in Le petit prince de Belleville that Beyala begins to focus explicitly on the experience of African migrants in France through a first-person child narrator.
