Roots, Germania? Afro-German Identity in Context

I have been really enlightened by some of the links my cyber-friend Rosamarie Pena of the Black German Cultural Society, Inc. over on Facebook. Especially in lieu of the current debate on integration, it’s interesting to see how Germany’s historical urge to  “other” people has affected a group who – for the most part – aren’t Muslim.

Click on the link below to gain some interesting insights into the Afro-German struggle for recognition and acceptance; where language skills, contradictory religious beliefs and differing cultural morès aren’t an issue.
