„Germany Black & White” by Noah Sow

Deutschland Schwarz Weiß by Noah Sow

A book that challenges accepted paradigms.

Many may be surprised to learn about the existence of numerous Black Germans who have always been an integral part of Europe. Currently, even the most cautious estimates say that there are far more than 1,000,000 Black people living in Germany, many of whom are German citizens. This makes up more than one percent of the country’s population.

Released in its 7th issue since 2008, including an Audio Book, Deutschland Schwarz Weiß has become an important and the most popular standard text in the discussion and education about structural racism in Germany.

Cover Noah Sow Deutschland Schwarz Weiss Der alltägliche Rassismus

With a background of years of media-watch and antiracist work, Noah Sow puts the finger into the wound of unconscious racism and erects many attention-getting stumbling blocks. Against the backdrop of Germany's specific difficulties with race and nationality, Noah Sow speaks the uncomfortable truth from a Black German perspective, thereby starting a process of awareness that will lead to changes.

In Deutschland Schwarz Weiß ("Germany Black & White"), we learn how even German UNICEF advertising campaigns use racist clichés, why Bavaria is a developing country, and why the relationships between White mothers and Black children are more than just a family affair.

Thanks to the author's unique talent to pair hard facts with humour, the result is a book that teaches about a subject that is as important as it is painful, in a way that is effective, substantial and entertaining.

This is going to pay off - for everyone.


"Amazing, incredibly multitalented and courageous. I love her sense of humor!"
