We Everywhere: Dialogues of the African Diaspora [GERMANY]
We Everywhere: Dialogues of the African Diaspora is a virtual series showcasing the overlooked voices, stories and histories of the African diaspora. From unexpected American states to countries including Germany, Iran, Ecuador, Israel, Palestine, Turkey and China, we’ll learn about various forms of migration that brought Afro-descendants to myriad places. Through storytelling workshops, film screenings, panel presentations, and explorations of art, music, food and traditions, we’ll explore these rich global communities and their connections to Brooklyn.
The first event in this series will center Black life in Germany. In celebration of the birthday of May Ayim, an Afro-German activist, poet, and educator, panelists from Black Brown Berlin will reflect on #BlackLivesMatter in a German context and speak about Black German activism, art, culture, and realities. Attendees will have access to a screening of a short related film and the opportunity to hear the creative director speak about the film and the conversations it has sparked about Black life in Germany.
