  1. Unable to comment, as it is all so emotional to me!!!I only found out recently that the area I grew up in Northern Mozambique was vital for the Slave trade…
    Fantastic! I would like to go back and research in loco!!!

    • Hi Maria, indeed. But because of the pictures, I meant North of Northern Mozambique, in the late 1800’s. Before that, slavery seemed fairly common throughout the region that is now Mozambique. There is not much evidence of the trade now, which hopefully will become clearer from study of the existing records and DNA evidence from the surviving descendents of slaves in the Americas and elsewhere (for example, many so-called Cape Coloureds descend from salves that came from the coast of present-day Mozambique). Best regards, ABM
