‘Black Germany’ with Prof. Robbie Aitken

Wednesday 12 January 2022

Join us for a talk and Q&A on the development of a Black Diaspora in Germany from the 1880s up to 1945

 

Join Professor Robbie Aitken (Sheffield Hallam) for this talk on ‘Black Germany’ to accompany the exhibition that will run in the Mary Wollstonecraft room throughout January. Based on ground-breaking research, the exhibition employs a number of biographies, accompanied by photographic images, in order to look at the largely forgotten development of a Black Diaspora in Germany from the 1880s up to 1945. In doing so, it provides insights into the routes and reasons that brought African men and women from the colonies to Germany pre-1914; it looks at forms of employment and the politics of Black residents during the interwar period, and it touches on the fate of Black residents and their German-born children during the period of National Socialism
