About the Event

Visit the Black Germany before the Second World War exhibition which is showcased in Seaborne Library for the duration of the Festival, then come along to this fascinating talk to learn more!

Who is it for: Anyone with an interest in history, the second world war, ethnicity, or anyone who simply wants to find out more. 

What you will gain from attending: Dr Robbie Aitken of Sheffield Hallam University discusses the ground-breaking research behind his internationally acclaimed exhibition Black Germany before the Second World War on the largely forgotten history of a Black Diaspora in Germany from the 1880s to 1945. This illustrated talk explores the routes and reasons that brought Black men and women to Germany pre-1914, the politics they engaged in, the lives they led during the interwar period and their fates during the Nazi period.
