Blogging our way through Eastern Europe
As students picked up their telephones in the final throes of the pre-trip week, it was clear that the anticipation of what we would experience on this trip was growing. Today's targeted populations presentations were on the Afro-Germans and Afro-Europeans and many referenced the post-Kolonial efforts to highlight Germany's need to recognize the realities and implications of what happened in its former colonial possessions. How exciting to think that one week from tomorrow, we will be meeting with members of that group to see what they are doing in Berlin's Afrikanische Viertel.
Have a great trip!

Wishing you all an amazing journey! Looking forward to reading about your experiences.
This trip was so impactful for me personally when I served as a chaperone. Can’t wait to virtually follow your travels! Take care of yourselves and each other through this journey.

Have a great trip and learn about some history.
This is something new. I never heard of Afro-Germans! Very interesting!
