Workshop with TSU Students on June 16

The African American Struggle for Civil Rights and its Impact on the GDR Buergerrechtsbewegung

Please join a discussion with nine students and their professor from Tennessee State University, in Nashville, Tennessee, a historically black university. The group is currently traveling in Germany to trace connecting points between German and African American history with special focus on civil rights movements and their interconnectedness. For example - why were they singing “We Shall Overcome” in the Nikolaikirche in 1989?

We look forward to a great discussion with Americans and Germans!

When? Monday, June 16, 2008, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
Where? Beethovenstrasse 15, Humanities Building, Room 2.516.
