Re: The Afro German Experience
In Response To: Re: The Afro German Experience ()

Hello Michael:

One of the best sources for contacting Afro-Germans may be the listings below.

The primary link will bring you to a list compiled by Ralph Dumain. Many links or listings cover some of the topics I wrote about in this thread.

In addition they include present day experiences:

ADEFRA: Black German Women

Der Spiegel's "African-German Filmmakers Hope to Open Up 'New Perspectives' by David Gordon Smith"

Also

"Remapping Black Germany. New Perspectives on Afro-German History, Politics, and Culture."

If you are interested in the African American-German experience, perhaps you would like to read this fascinating research entitled:

"How the Germans Became White Southerners: German Immigrants and African Americans in Charleston, South Carolina, 1860–1880" by JEFFERY STRICKLAND

Please click on the History Cooperative's link directly below:

I do hope that these links will help you.
