Black Lives Matter
In a series of Transatlantic Tandem Talks, a live, one-hour virtual discussion featuring Dr. Silke Hackenesch from the University of Cologne in Germany and Dr. Tiffany Florvil from the University of New Mexico in the U.S. Their tandem talk “Society in Transition: A Transatlantic Conversation on Black Lives Matter” will include an interactive Q&A session.
Black Lives Matter is now a global political and social movement. In 2013, three African American women created the hashtag in response to racism targeted at African Americans and in support of civil rights for other marginalized communities. This protest movement has resonated with Black, Indigenous, and other people of color across the world, including in Germany.
