Black History Month


Clear the stage for a month of black culture and history

Black History Month is an international month of observance celebrating Black history and culture. The tradition dates back to 1926, when African-American historian Dr. Carter G. Woodson founded the NEGRO HISTORY WEEK in order to educate the general public about Black history and achievements of African-Americans.

In Germany, the first Black History Month took place in 1990 and was organized by the Initiative Schwarze Menschen in Deutschland e.V. (ISD).

The WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN continues in this tradition every February, celebrating a whole month of Black culture and history with film screenings and discussions, music performances, lectures and more. Focusing on a different theme every year, the WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN seeks to present the diversity and complexity of as well as the unifying within Black culture and history.
