BUNDESTREFFEN. In August 2009 the German Black Community gathers again to see and define what Schwarze Deutsche can mean. Looking for the newest trends in Activities and success stories to share and distribute knowledge of oppression and liberation. The social networks of a virtual community brought together by the outside pressure of racism in Germany are exchanged for family ties having grown since 1985 and welcome to new community members are extended.
Black People from Africa, Israel, Brazil, Swiss, The Netherland, Austria or Black Europe in General as well as from around the Global Black Atlantic tend to drop in for an extended stay, to promote their projects or just a short visit.
Over the years new generations have grown and partly even already grown up to participate with the energy of knowledge that their parents already were activists. Most come to party and chill in an enviroment were white mainstream isn’t determining the rules of who is beautiful and who isn’t. With the rise of Black Germans or Afro Deutsche being the new IN Topic of Academic Research in the US of A the Black German Community from overseas represented by the Black Germans in the USA are becoming more and more curious and professionally interested.
And so is the white mainstream interested in deconstructing its own perspective in Critical Whiteness Studies. The questions we encountered when we were doing our shit in the 80ties definitely are changing, at least so in the major cities. And still so much groundwork has to be done over and over again. So it should be another interesting meeting coming up @ Bundestreffen 2009.
