Last month ( March) during the African Day at the Naval Academy of Lisbon, I have been invited to present the project African Lisbon Tour and talk about the History of Slavery in Portugal.
It is undeniable that the topic of slavery is difficult and sensitive and for this reason the approaches are different.
Unfortunately some of the approaches such as the silence or the adornment or lies are the most usual and result very dangerous for our societies and communities because this still digging a huge gap between the truth and the reality.
It has a pleasure and honour to have shared with all the students and also the responsible of the Academy.
All my regards to the Commanders, Captains and Director of the Academy for the warm welcome and also the students for their choice in this exchange as one of the highlights of their celebration.
