The idea of the first open-mic is first originated in the 1930s when a group of some students gathered at a place in Paris & the place was a tea shop.

Writers of the Harlem Renaissance by the author Paulette Nardal, & her sister Jane are also prevent in that group & leads to the creation of an African movement called “Negritude”.

The Nardal Sisters participated well, in the Negritude movement, with there writing skills are bed The tea shop named Clamart Salon, is the hangout place where the negritude movement truly started. Paulette Nardal & Dr. Leo Sajou founded a journal named “La Revue du Monde Noir” a literary journal published in English & French from the Clamart Salon.

The founders of the Negritude are the three Fathers named.
1) Aime Cesaire (Poet, playwright & Politician)
2) Leopold Sedas Senghor (poet & Activist)
3) Leon – Gontran Damas (Poet)

In 1934 this trio leads to publishing the first journal devoted to Negritude named “The Black Student” (L’Etudiant Noir). Further, many more are opened.
