Ihren Kampf begriffen amerikanische Bürgerrechtler seit jeher als einen globalen und trugen diesen auch nach Deutschland in die DDR. Während die SED dort Solidarität mit der afroamerikanischen Bevölkerung verkündete, ermutigten Martin Luther Kings Ideen so manchen zum Widerstand gegen die SED-Diktatur. Maria Schubert untersucht anhand der DDR-Besuche von Paul Robeson, Martin Luther King, Ralph Abernathy und Angela Davis die Wirkungsgeschichte der afro-amerikanischen Bürgerrechtsbewegung im ostdeutschen Staat. Neben der offiziellen SED-Politik gegenüber dem sogenannten "anderen Amerika" stehen die eigenwilligen Umdeutungen des Bildes bei der Bevölkerung im Mittelpunkt. Dabei setzt sich die Autorin mit der Geschichte der afroamerikanischen Bürgerrechtsbewegung und der sozialistischen Gedankenwelt auseinander. Sie zeigt, wie (inner-)gesellschaftliche Entwicklungen in der DDR durch transnationale Einflüsse eine besondere Dynamik erhielten.

When Howard Zinn died in early 2010, millions of Americans mourned the loss of one of the nation’s foremost intellectual and political guides; a historian, activist, and truth-teller who, in the words of the New York Times’ Bob Herbert, “peel[ed] back the rosy veneer of much of American history to reveal sordid realities that had remained hidden for too long.” A collection designed to highlight Zinn’s essential writings, The Indispensable Zinn includes excerpts from Zinn’s bestselling A People’s History of the United States; his memoir, You Can’t Be Neutral on a Moving Train; his inspiring writings on the civil rights movement, and the full text of his celebrated play, Marx in Soho. Noted historian and activist Timothy Patrick McCarthy provides essential historical and biographical context for each selection. With an introduction from Zinn’s former Spellman College student and longtime friend Alice Walker, and an afterword by Noam Chomsky, The Indispensable Zinn is both a fitting tribute to the legacy of a man whose “work changed the way millions of people saw the past” (Noam Chomsky), and a powerful and accessible introduction for anyone coming to Zinn’s essential body of work for the first time.

Pete Seeger was an American folk musician and social activist whose outspoken songs about freedom and justice got him blacklisted from radio and TV for years. Pete Seeger was still singing and playing the banjo for tens of thousands of fans even when he was at the age of ninety-four. Born in New York City on May 3, 1919, Pete came from a family of musicians. Despite writing and singing folk songs that all of America knows, not many kids know his name. Why? Because his ties to the Communist Party got him banned from radio and television for many years! Well-known for his civil rights activism with Martin Luther King Jr., Seeger also spearheaded efforts that cleaned up the Hudson River and made it beautiful again. His best-known songs include "Where Have All the Flowers Gone?", "If I Had a Hammer" and "Turn, Turn, Turn." In this easy-to-read biography from the New York Times best-selling series, Pete Seeger is revealed as not just a performer but as a champion for a better world and the eighty illustrations contained in the book help bring his story to life.
