How am i being “elitist” when i clearly state, “OUR Africa” ?
“The phenomenon of Afro-Brazilians returning to Africa began in the first half of the 18th century and lasted until the beginning of the 20th century. Studies have been written on the Afro-Brazilian communities in Benin and Nigeria, very little has been written on the communities of Togo and Ghana. This article is a preliminary exploration of the history of the Afro-Brazilian community in Togo, especially in Lomé, between 1882 and 1945. It focuses on the history of the Olympio family, one of the most prominent families of Togo.
Beginning with the history of patriarch Francisco Olympio Silva, the founder of the family in Africa, and ending with his grandson’s Sylvanus Epiphanio Kwami Olympio, emergence as a liberation leader after the Second World War, the article gives an overview of the level of economic and political influence that the Afro-Brazilian community wielded in the country during the period in question.”
