Black biographies in history and present
28.3.2021 – 3.7.2021
The existence and contributions of people of African origin are still insufficiently recognized in Germany, both in historiography and in public discourse. And if they are, they are often spoken about by others instead of letting them have their word. Homestory Germany breaks with this: 27 biographies tell of racism and exclusion in Germany, but also of the diversity and work of black people – in the course of our common history and in all areas of our society. These contemporary testimonies create a stigma-free view of black people that does justice to the importance of African origins.
