Africans and Jamaicans

Africans and Jamaicans
The Iberian Peninsula sent the first Africans to Jamaica in 1513. Many of them battled with their Spanish masters when the English invaded Jamaica in 1655. They subsequently retreated to the mountains, where they resisted the English colonial government for decades. Akan were the majority of slaves sent into Jamaica during the British era.
