They were a part of the mix from the thirteenth century, despite the fact that Germany was not unified and so did not enter into colonization until after other European countries. Africans appeared in German territories as free men and women as well as slaves; they influenced art and served at courts, they wrote, and they traveled. Here, with eleven essays, contributors trace this fascinating aspect of the African diaspora in such topics as African Christians in Renaissance Germany, African people ion fifteenth and sixteenth-century German-speaking areas, African servants in baroque courts, Africans who went from being American slaves to Hessian subjects, the German reception of African American writers in the nineteenth century, Frederich Tiedemann's scientific discourses on the African diaspora, African-American travelers in nineteenth-century Germany, popular German "race science" in the emancipation era, Tuskegee's uplift ideology in German Togoland, and Cameroonian schoolchildren and apprentices in Germany.
