“I am happy here in Germany…I got tired of being a second class citizen. I feel like a man now, and people treat me like a man –which is more than I can say about the place where I was born.”

A black GI on his decision to stay in Germany after his tour of duty, from Negro Digest (March 1949)

Images

This gallery of images illustrates the untold story of African-American GIs and Germany and the transnational implications of the African-American civil rights movement.

By illuminating the experience of World War II, the postwar period, as well as the emergence of the civil rights movement and black power solidarity in East and West Germany, it provides a small glimpse into the wealth of photographs that will be made available through our digital archive. For another selection of images, see our exhibition.
