About BSOA

Black Switzerland Online Archive (BSOA) is a digital archive with the motto: Black Representation Matters! BSOA began in 2020 with the mission to cover the contributions of Black people in the fields of politics, culture, literature and art, as well as to document the history of Black people and biographies of Black professionals in Switzerland. Books, articles, films, organizations, businesses and events of Black professionals are listed, and thus made easily accessible.
