NORTHQUAD 2435 | JANUARY 14th | 2-4pm

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 equity had ripple effects beyond our nation’ s borders. It is with the intention of adding an international perspective to the discussion of race and race relations that the German department is proud to present a curated screening of Schwarze Adler; a documentary film in which Black players of the German national soccer team tell their personal stories for the very first time.  Their stories of challenges, successes and failures, as well as their prognostications on racism and identity in Germany, reflect the struggles faced by communities of color both within the sporting world and without.
