A History of

Enslavement
Angola at the time of the
Transatlantic Slave Trade
from Angola to Jamestown,
Virginia in 1619*
From 1501 to 1867, more than 12.5 million Africans were captured, sold, and transported
to the Americas. While Portugal and Spain were the first European powers engaged
in this trade, eventually most of the European powers would join. It was as profitable
as it was brutal. The Africans who came to Virginia in 1619 had been taken from
Angola in West Central Africa. They were captured in a series of wars that were part of
Portuguese hostilities against the Kongo and Ndongo kingdoms, and other states.*
