From Black to Schwarz explores the long and varied history of the
exchanges between
African America and Germany with a particular focus on cultural interplay.
Covering a wide range of media of expression – music, performance, film,
scholarship, literature, visual arts, reviews – the essays collected in
this volume trace and analyze a cultural interaction, collaboration and
mutual transformation that began in the eighteenth century, literally
boomed during the Harlem Renaissance/Weimar Republic, could not even be
liquidated by the Third Reich’s `Degenerate Art‘ campaigns, and, with new
media available to further exchanges, is still increasingly empowering and
inspiring participants on both sides of the Atlantic.

Prof. Dr. Maria Diedrich holds a Chair in American Studies at the WWUM.
Her research focuses on African American literature and culture in a
transatlantic context.

Dr. Jürgen Heinrichs teaches art history at Seton Hall University in New
Jersey, USA. His research explores the interrelationships between African
American and European art and visual culture.
