What is Schwarz Rot Gold?

“Schwarz Rot Gold” travels through Germany to speak to Black Germans about the past, present and future of German identity and racism.



Growing up in Germany, Jermain Raffington yearned for idols that he could identify with. So Jermain and his wife Laurel decided to find these idols and initiated the project “Schwarz Rot Gold”. They want their own and other children to grow up in a tolerant Germany – in an environment that inspires them to pursue their goals.
