Modern Languages Spotlight - April 2016

FlorvilOn April 7th, the Modern Languages Department coordinated the College of Arts & Sciences Diversity Lecture given by Tiffany Florvil, Assistant Professor at the University of New Mexico, entitled "May Ayim, the Afro-German Movement, and her Transnational Activism."

May Ayim was a prominent Afro-German poet who engaged in social activism by performing across Europe, Africa, and the U.S., employing her literary work to obtain social visibility and equality for herself and other people of color. With the support of Audre Lorde, Ayim and others established the Afro-German movement of the 1980s and 1990s. The well attended lecture was co-sponsored also by the departments of English, History, and Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies.
