The German Museum for Black Entertainment and Black Music is Germany’s leading museum for black culture, popular music and history. It boasts a comprehensive archive of records, magazines, autographs, and memorabilia that is presented for the first time within a vibrant space of mediation and discourse. It is accompanied by a diverse programme of events. Through solitary explorations or guided tours, the audience is deeply immersed into a movement that unites stars such as Mola Adebisi, Tic Tac Toe or Sydney Youngblood. In their juxtaposition they gain a new visibility that reveals similarities and differences in their staging, strategies and attributions.

The Museum for Black Entertainment and Black Music offers an extensive program of events. In song recitals, listening sessions, conversations and other formats, experts work through the museum’s archive and provide insights into various issues.
