The Transformation of Slavery in Benguela, Angola:
Dependency and Social Categories in the NIneteenth Century

The establishment of the Atlantic slave trade, responsible for the forced migration of at least 11 million Africans to the American continent, brought about a radical modification in the organization of African slavery and, at the same time, enabled the creation of modern transatlantic slavery. This new scenario created various situations of dependency not only in the African colonies, but also in the European countries involved in human trafficking.

Thus my research currently has the following objectives: To unravel the concealments or omissions involving this topic, not with the purpose of exalting resentment, guilt or the unjustifiable of the current state of our development as Africans, but to elicit facts, roles, contexts and circumstances of the true tragedy that was the transatlantic trade of human beings from the African coast, through the judicial processes existing in the county court of Benguela, dating from the nineteenth and twentieth century.
