AFRO-SWEDES – FIFTEEN STORIES FROM HISTORY

The book highlights a handful of human stories from Swedish history from around 1700 to 1950. The people portrayed were all black, but in many other ways they were different from each other. They lived in different times and places. They often shared everyday life with other Swedes in the same social class, but could also have unique experiences in the shadow of the transatlantic slave trade.

The book is aimed at anyone who wants to know more about Afro-Swedish history (from 12 years old).

After the talk, you can get your copy of the book, which is of course sold on site, signed by the author and illustrator. There will also be a mingle with drinks and snacks.

About the author
Johanna Berg works with digital development issues at Världskulturmuseerna, and has long been interested in the variegated and multifaceted history that is easily obscured by the large, national one. For Afrosvenskar – femton berättelser ur historien, she has tracked down information in a variety of sources, and written short texts about a small selection of the black people who moved in Sweden before us. They are part of Swedish cultural history.

About the cartoonist
Maria Fröhlich is a writer, illustrator and cartoonist. In recent years, she has published two of her own picture books, Ruby and the Lion (2021) and Ruby and the Potion (2023). Among many other things, she has also illustrated for American Marvel, most recently A treasure worthy of a king (2022). Maria also teaches at Konstfack, and lectures and leads workshops on drawing and illustration.

Afro-Swedes – fifteen stories from history is a co-production between Världskulturmuseerna and Lilla Piratförlaget.

The program is a collaboration with Lilla Piratförlaget.
