As we celebrate the extraordinary life and message of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. it is important to note that his vision of hope and racial equality had ripple effects not just through our nation, but across the pond as well. It is with the intention of adding an international perspective to the discussion of race and race relations that the the German department is proud to present Jana Pareigis' investigative film Afro.Germany, in which Pareigis travels across Germany asking the questions: What is it like to be a black person in Germany? And what needs to change?

The event will take place in two locations on January 21, 2019 in the Hatcher Gallery from noon - 2:30, and MLB 3308 from 2pm-5pm. Played on a continuous loop, audiences are invited to come and view as much, or as little, of this journalistic film as they wish.
