Über die Veranstaltung

In Scholarship Boy Palmer reflects on his experiences as a young black boy growing up far away from home, learning to fit into a white world without becoming estranged from his closely-knit family. Palmer’s journey from being the “next-to-the-baby” of his family into adulthood reveals the personal and often hidden costs of cultural migration.

In an interview conducted by Prof. Dr. Andreas Falke, director of the German-American Institute Nürnberg, and Matthias Koeplin, Regional Chapter Chair Northern Bavaria, American Chamber of Commerce Germany followed by a Q&A session, American systems of higher education and different perspectives on race will be discussed.
