Black German

An Afro-German Life in the Twentieth Century By Theodor Michael

Theodor Michael and Eve Rosenhaft

Liverpool University Press

  • This is only one of two black German autobiographies available in English, and the only autobiography from the generation of German-born children of German colonial subjects
  • For students of black German / Afro-German history and culture, Michael's story will be of particular interest because forms a critical link between the Afro-German identity movement of the 1980s and the experience of preceding generations
  • The translation is the work of an internationally acknowledged expert in black German studies, and accompanying notes make it usable for undergraduate teaching purposes as well as helping to contextualise the story for general readers
