Prof. Berg’s lecture is part of the GHI Spring Lecture Series 2011

 Crossing the Color Line: A Global History of the African American Freedom Struggle
Organized by Universität Heidelberg Alumni
Martin Klimke (GHI)

African American civil rights activists early on conceived of their struggle for racial equality as part of a larger struggle against colonialism in Africa, Asia, and South America. This lecture series brings together scholars from both sides of the Atlantic to reflect on this booming field of African America history and to shed light on how both African Americans' quest for equality and the responses to it transcended the borders of the United States. Focusing on new actors and geographic regions, the series will offer a more comprehensive perspective on the civil rights movement.
