Katharina Oguntoye / May Opitz / Dagmar Schultz (Eds.) 1995: Bekennen Farbe. Afro-German women on the traces of their history. Berlin: Orlanda Frauenverlag

“Isolation means being invisible, being easily overlooked, having to struggle alone. It took us a long time to realize this, but we decided to TAKE COLOR.” (May Opitz). With their book, the authors try to go in search of their history, to reveal social contexts of racism and to draw attention to their particular situation. A situation that has currently intensified, in the sign of increasing racist attacks and hatred of foreigners. (from the blurb)
