Teaching about Black Europe in AP European History

I teach AP European History at a school where our student population is 20% black and 10% biracial. I have been teaching Euro for two years and I'm trying to find ways to incorporate history that will be more meaningful for my black and biracial students in a European history course. I use McKay and have incorporated their readings on Rebecca Protten and Olaudah Equiano and I have had a discussion on the Windrush generation in England. I am wondering how any of you address the history of nonwhites in Europe beyond the slave trade in your survey courses.

New Publication: Afropean: Notes from Black Europe, Johny Pitts 06.06.19

'Afropean. Here was a space where blackness was taking part in shaping European identity ... A continent of Algerian flea markets, Surinamese shamanism, German Reggae and Moorish castles. Yes, all this was part of Europe too ... With my brown skin and my British passport - still a ticket into mainland Europe at the time of writing - I set out in search of the Afropeans, on a cold October morning.'
