Event description

Description

Speaker: Leo Garofalo, Associate Professor of History, Connecticut College

From 1471 to 1700, enslaved and free Africa- and Europe-born African people made up perhaps 20% of southern Iberia’s urban populations. As sailors, soldiers, traders, artisans, and servants, they became part of Spanish expansion into the Americas and Asia, and raiding and trading in Africa. Archival documents from the 1530s to 1680s reveal struggles for survival by individuals and families in a branch of the African Diaspora rooted in Europe. Through their movement and resettlements, they helped shape Iberian, IberoAmerican, and Philippine societies.
