The story of the meeting between the Kongo Kingdom and strangers from distant Portugal is both riveting and tragic. Located in West Central Africa, Kongo was a large and prosperous state when the first Portuguese ships arrived in 1483. This unit investigates one of the most engrossing cases of first encounter between two peoples in early modern times. Relations between the kings of Kongo and Portugal started out well but later degenerated as both European and African profiteers turned their attention to the Atlantic slave trade. The unit includes vivid primary source documents, a simulation activity, and short pieces of original historical fiction accompany five of the six lessons.
