Against Black-Face Roles in German Theatre

Against Black-Face Roles in German Theatre
  
  

 

Why this is important to me

The German theatre use of "black-faced" white actors in roles written and designed for blacks subverts the intentions of the dramatists and denies work to black actors. On a broader scale, black-face demeans black Germans and reinforces racist societal and political positions of power.
