Mapping Black Central Europe

Image of a map of Black Central Europe, showing people and things of interest.

The University of Michigan class "Germany and the Black Diaspora," taught by Professor Kira Thurman, worked over the course of the Winter 2016 semester to create a map of Black Central Europe. Each student identified important figures, events or objects to research and create pins for; the pins were then combined into one, larger map. A central theme guided the class: "making the invisible visible."
