i went to the portuguese fort at Widah (Benin). Absolutely traumatizing.
you see they never mentioned that in history they always portray that we sell out our own people for monetary gain
It means the conceptualization of African is constructed post-enslavement? You to clarify nations provides a better understanding of the slave trade.
Widah (Ouidah) had 5 slave forts, one per colonizer. only the portuguese one remains. (or was rebuilt by the portuguese as a historical marker). the forts were burned down when colonizers left -- so the evidence disappeared in the flames.
Britain hasn't really left either. Jamaica still has the Queen
@Marla: when you go to Togo, Benin and that area, you see multiple statues to salute african kings who resisted colonization and enslavement.
