(p.144) Chapter Seven Bantulands: West Central Africa and Mozambique
Slavery and African Ethnicities in the Americas

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter discusses the transatlantic slave trade from the Bantulands–West Central Africa, the region that supplied enslaved Africans to the Americas in massive numbers throughout the entire period of the transatlantic slave trade, and Mozambique, a region that exported enslaved Africans in a large scale during the late eighteenth and the nineteenth centuries. One-fourth of the enslaved Africans introduced into British West Indian colonies were West Central Africans. In the Americas, they were clustered most consistently in Brazil. Mozambique was by far the major region in Southeast Africa from which enslaved Africans were imported and brought mainly to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Keywords:   transatlantic slave trade, Bantulands, West Central Africa, Mozambique, British West Indies, Brazil, Southeast Africa, Rio de Janeiro
