On February 8th, Professor Kristin Kopp (German) gave a lecture at Bates College entitled "The Rose Parks House — at Home in Berlin." In her article about the lecture for the Bates Student, reporter Jamie Shelton wrote: "Dr. Kopp illuminated the importance of examining how we contextualize history and evaluate the present. She hoped that this conversation could raise awareness of the transnational nature of Civil Rights history through consideration of the influence of American experiences while stationed during the postwar occupation in West Germany. During Black History Month, the lecture elevated nuanced understandings of the Civil Rights movement, encouraging the audience to re-examine the perspectives with which they learn about American and Black History."
