About the Event

Based on ground-breaking research, the exhibition Black Germany 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.

Pop into the library at any point during the festival period and find out more.  In addition, historian and curator Robbie Aitken of Sheffield Hallam University will be visiting the University on 6th March to talk about the exhibition in more detail, see the event details below. 

No need to book, just turn up!
