Video: Slavery in Brazil, an inconvenient Portuguese history

Copyright All rights reserved by carf
Brazil's history of slavery has always been overshadowed by the American and the Caribbean history of slavery. This documentary of BBC's Time Watch series won't change it, but it will show you how slavery shaped the lives of black people in Brazil. And how it shaped the country's social structure and ethnic landscape. And yes, it’s also the history of Portugal.

Part 5


  1. Please, You should watch this. Is this tolerable?

    Disgusting! What did the Etiopian Embassy do while she was crying to death out there?


  2. Interesting documentary about the history of slavery in Brazil. Many times Brazil is seen as having been less abusive than the American form of slavery due to the fact that slaves were able to purchase their freedoms and appear to be incorporated in society (i.e. Chica da Silva)
