Transnational connections between African American and German histories in the “century of extremes” are often misunderstood or overlooked. Intimate Histories uncovers important links and sites of struggle in the history of race, the Nazi period, and the fight for civil rights in both East and West Germany. Historical investigations take their points of departure from anti-miscegenation laws, forced sterilizations, or casual sexual, cross-racial encounters to frame the shared pasts of African Americans against broader developments surrounding German Fascism, the Cold War, and global struggles for Black liberation.

Nadja Klopprogge is an assistant professor at the University of Tübingen. She has held positions in Gießen and Basel, and in 2016 she was a fellow in the History of Race and Ethnicity at the German Historical Institute in Washington, D.C. She has published on the nexus of race and sex in postwar Germany, and she her work has been awarded the Best Article Award of the German Association of American Studies.
