“If Hitler wins, every single right we now possess and for which we have struggled here in America for more than three centuries will be instantaneously wiped out by Hitler’s triumphs. If the allies win, we shall at least have the right to continue fighting for a share of democracy for ourselves.“

“Fight for Liberties Here While Fighting Dictators Abroad, NAACP urges,” The Crisis, January 1942

Chapel Hill, NC - University of North Carolina

Photo Exhibition: “The Civil Rights Struggle, African American GIs, and Germany“
Robert and Sallie Brown Gallery and Museum, University of North Carolina
September 9 - October 28, 2011

Exhibition Opening: September 8, 2011, 7 pm
Introduction by Maria Höhn

“The Civil Rights Struggle, African American GIs and Germany“ exhibition will open at the Robert and Sallie Brown Gallery and Museum, Thursday, September 8, at 7pm.

The exhibition, on display thru October 28, features photos, cartoons and political posters that tell an intriguing story of how American and German history became intertwined in the struggle for civil rights.

The exhibition was curated by Maria Höhn, Professor of History at Vassar College and Dr. Martin Klimke, Research Fellow at the German Historical Institute in Washington, D.C.  This project expands the boundaries of the African American Freedom Struggle beyond the U.S. and depicts African American GIs as active participants in the victory over Nazism, the democratization of Germany after WWII, and in the advancement of civil rights in their own country and beyond.

The opening reception is set for 7pm on September 8 and is free and open to the public. Professor Maria Höhn will give a brief presentation at the reception. Local representatives from the National Association of Black Veterans, Tuskegee Airmen, Montford Point Marines, and Buffalo Soldiers will attend the reception as special guests.
