Internal Diasporas: Slave Resistance and Family Connections during the Era of Abolitionism in Angola
My paper considers how African slaves built on family connections to contribute to the abolition of the slave trade in Angola, one one of the key suppliers of captives to the Atlantic world in the nineteenth century. The paper argues that pervasive slave resistance brought about Diasporic movements through the formation of runaway communities that effectively slowed colonial expansion towards internal Angola.
