Rethinking Black Feminist Solidarity in Germany

Tiffany Florvil, Associate Professor of History at the University of New Mexico

Please join the Department of Germanic Languages & Literatures and the Department of African and African-American Studies for the first lecture in the "Impacting Culture: Germany's African Diaspora" lecture series.

Dr. Florvil's paper analyzes Black German women’s participation in the international Cross-Cultural Black Women’s Studies Summer Institute conferences. Black German women, such as Marion Kraft, Helga Emde, and Katharina Oguntoye, brought the 1991 Institute to reunified Germany. These women's involvement with the institute represented their commitment to forge a global Black feminist solidarity with Women of Color and other allies. In the process, they advanced a particular type of gendered political Blackness.

The lecture is free and open to the public. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the event.
