BLACK SOCIAL HISTORY
Born Zeca Fonseca, he studied at an agricultural college in Angola. His father was killed in 1984 during the Angolan civil war. In 1988, Fonseca arrived in Germany as a contract worker for Hildburghausen and trained in VEB Screws and Standard Parts Factory as a lathe operator. He married a German woman whose surname he took and applied in 1997 for German citizenship. In 2004, he became a German citizen and on the same day joined the CDU.
At the district council election in June 2009, Schall ran for Hildburghausen district council on list position 30 of the CDU, to be awarded at a total of 40 seats for the district council. Schall received 42 first-round votes and was not elected.
Schall's became known internationally during the 2009 Thuringia state election after he was threatened by the NPD. Schall was not running for office, but had been pictured alongside Minister-President Dieter Althaus and others on CDU election posters.
The NPD hung posters wishing Schall "good journey home" (Gute Heimreise) and issued a press release which described Schall as a "quota negro" (Quotenneger) and published his home address, telling readers to look forward to "direct talks" at his home to "encourage him to return home." Schall was subsequently placed under police protection and his home was barricaded from NPD supporters.
The CDU Thuringia filed a criminal complaint against the NPD for sedition, extortion and defamation. Auxiliary Bishop Reinhard Hauke expressed solidarity on behalf of the church with Zeca Schall. On 19 August 2009, the council and the mayor of the district of Hildburghausen unanimously adopted a resolution to emphasize the openness of the city for all democratically-minded people and the rejection of racial exclusivity.
On 24 March 2010, NPD leader Patrick David Wieschke was found guilty of defamation and fined €1800 in the court of Eisenach. The funds were to go to an organization working to remove land mines in Schall's native Angola.
