May Ayim, an Afro-German writer and activist, pursued activism across the globe. But Ayim also developed strong activist ties in Germany. Influenced by Afro-Caribbean feminist and writer Audre Lorde, Ayim and others ushered in the modern Black German movement of the 1980s and 1990s. In doing so, she co-founded the Berlin chapter of the Initiative of Black Germans (Initiative Schwarze Deutsche, ISD), a cultural and political organization.
