The Ties That Bind Us: Being Black in America

Workshop für Schüler*innen mit Esther T. Earbin, J.D., Freiburg im Rahmen des Black History Month

What does it mean to be Black in the United States of America? This interactive lecture explores the history and culture of Black people living in the United States. The use of the terms “Black”, “African-American”, and “person of color” has changed over time, but they each represent how the history of Black Americans is closely related to what the United States looks like today. Through short activities and discussions, students will learn about the challenges and successes that Black people experience in America. Students will also learn how this experience connects to their world, even if it is oceans away.
Esther T. Earbin is a PhD candidate at the MPI for Foreign and International Criminal Law in Freiburg. Since 2016 she works as a Guest Lecturer at the University of Tübingen. She is a frequent lecturer at the Carl-Schurz-Haus on current events, political trends and the black experience in the USA.
