Castles and Fisher Folk

Trasfoco: Fishing

There are numerous castles and forts along the western coast of Africa built by European colonizers. These buildings can be seen as surviving proof of an era in which white man ransacked Africa in search of all kinds of commodities, including black men and women who were shipped to America in infrahuman conditions as slave labour. These stone structures, recognized today for their cultural and historical legacy, safeguard the memory of the extreme violence committed on people by other people. On the nearby beaches, under the shadow of these castles, the local fishermen try to make a living from what the sea provides.
