Klar bin ich von hier is a book written
by journalist Sabine Priess and published by Edition Riedenburg.
Aimed at schools but also for home reading, the book shines a spotlight on racism and discrimination in daily life through the story of a young black boy living in Berlin.
Scenes at school, in the bus or supermarket for example, show how (german) people of colour in Germany are made to feel like they don’t belong. Sometimes through outright racist remarks but often by what may seem like “innocent” questions and behaviours.
