BGHRA at davidson college

Black German Art & Resistance

Course Description

Taught in English, this class explores contemporary literature, music, film, poetry, theater, and activism that has been written, created, performed, and enacted by Afro- and Black-Germans. Taking special care to center the voices and works of Afro- and Black-Germans and the work of BIPOC scholars, our topics will include (re)unification and (German) identity, memory culture, the politics of representation, East Germany, racisms, resistance and forms of activism, coalition- and solidarity-building, and more. Central to the class is our collaboration with the Black German Heritage & Research Association (BGHRA) and its president, Dr. Rosemarie Peña.
