AFRO BRAZIL: The African Diaspora In BRAZIL

Join us for a dose of Brazilian black history! Did you know Brazil has the largest African diaspora population in the world outside of Africa? That’s right! This stems from the Transatlantic Slave Trade whereby an estimated 4.9 million enslaved Africans were trafficked to Brazil… that’s nearly 40% of all slaves traded in the Transatlantic…



  1. You should do one over Aruba, Curaçao and Bonaire, the story is similar to Brazil's own. People from Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao ancestors is also from Cape Verde our language (Papiamento/Piamentu) is a Portuguese creole.

  2. Brazil have the second largest black population outside Africa and not first! Mixed race Brazilians are predominantly european in their genetic background ( and exist zambos in Brazil also) put them in the same category of blacks like Brazil president does are really pathetic! See carnival parade, mulattas, samba, the black culture of Rio de Janeiro who 90% are black and think that the whole Brazil look like this

  3. The slave trade in the Americas formally began on February 12, 1528 with the approval of the Emperor of the Germanic Roman Empire and king of Spain Charles V of Habsburg. The first beneficiaries of this authorization were two German merchants, Henri Ehinger and Jérome Sayler. Both were representatives of the Welsers, German bankers who dominated the finances of the Spanish crown alongside the Fuggers, together with the Genoese, they were pioneers of the slave trade to this region.
    However, it should be noted that both the Fuggers and the Welsers belong to the German companies of merchant bankers, who made their fortunes in the spice trade, mainly sugar and slaves, as they are the ones who introduced the first large sugar mills in the Americas and with it the slave trade. They had the monopoly on trafficking African slaves to the Americas.
    English slave traders erupted on the Caribbean scene from 1562 to 1569, with the arrival of John Hawkins.
    Germans did not abolish slavery in Tanganyika, only in 1922 when it became English.
    Servitude Ordinance of 1922 would effect a speedy decline of an already dying institution.1 Yet, only thirty years earlier under German colonial rule, slavery was a pervasive feature of most East African societies.

  4. Totally ridiculous 43% of Brazilians are a mix of europeans, africans and less extent and only 20% is black. The european ancestry is predominantly in mixed race Brazilians for this reason is stupid claim 50% of them are "black"
