Free Angela Davis, Der Augenzeuge Nr. 44
DDR 1971

When it came to America’s struggles on the domestic front, the GDR emphatically took sides with African Americans – partly due to genuine solidarity and partly to propagandistic expediency. However, given that racism remains rampant in Germany, not least in its eastern states, it seems rather abstruse when Ralph Abernathy is assured in Free Angela Davis that “there is no room for racism” in the GDR.
