She dropped jewels on this one, so had to Repost from @bougiekartel via @maarifacircle ⛵⛵ FOCUS ON WHERE THE SHIP PICKED US UP FROM ⛵⛵ 💮The Dominican Republic was the first port of entry of slaves in the Americas, and the site of the first slave revolt in the Americas. 💮Although Dominicans have this historical African heritage, it is denied and neglected in contemporary Dominican and other Afro Latino societies. 💮ORIGINS:
Many people of Black African origin arrived in the Americas with the Spanish and Portuguese in the 15th and 16th centuries.Pedro Alonso Niño, traditionally considered the first of many New World explorers of Black African descent was a navigator in the 1492 Columbus expedition. 💮Those who were directly from West Africa mostly arrived in Latin America as part of the Atlantic slave trade, as agricultural, domestic, and menial laborers and as mineworkers. They were mostly brought from West Africaand Central Africa in what are now the nations of Nigeria, Ghana, Benin, Angola, and Congo. 💮There are six major groups: the Yoruba, Igbo,Hausa, Ewe, Akan, and the Bantu (mostlyZulu). Most of the slaves were sent to Brazil, and the Caribbean, but lesser numbers went to Colombia and Venezuela. Countries with significant black, mulatto, or zambo populations today include Brazil (c, 100 million)
