Imagine you are in Germany. The year is 1937. You are Black.

Since it is Black History Month, I would like to use the opportunity to point out this film project to you. Rheinland is a movie about one of the descendants of the black soldiers, who were stationed in West Germany, the Rhineland specifically, by the French during their occupation of the country after the First World War. Check out the video at the bottom for more information. (It’s in German with English subtitles.) And here’s the teaser trailer (also German with English subtitles):

It’s an important part of Black History, because these people were also victims of the politics of ethnic and racial cleansing of the Nazis, but are so easily forgotten and ignored. So, check it out and support it!
