Road Show Micro Exhibition: I Can’t Stand Fences: Black Radicals and Cold War Crossing at the German-German Border
Anna F. Duensing is a PhD candidate in History and African American Studies at Yale University. Her research explores how fascism and antifascism broadly impacted the Black freedom struggle in the United States after 1945. In addition to interrogating the substance–the actual agents, accomplices, and institutions–driving accusations of a unique form of U.S. fascism, her dissertation elevates the actions and legacies of multiracial coalitions of antifascist activists within the civil rights movement. Anna also works as an educator and researcher at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum in New York.
