Seventeenth century Queen Njinga was one of the most multifaceted rulers in history, mixing political cunning and military prowess. At the height of her reign in the 1640s Njinga ruled almost one-quarter of modern-day northern Angola. Today, Njinga is revered in Angola as a national heroine and honored in folk religions, and her complex legacy continues to resonate, forming a crucial part of the collective memory of the Afro-Atlantic world. Linda Heywood, Professor of History and African American Studies at Boston University, offers the first full-length study in English of Queen Njinga’s long life and political influence. She will be joined in conversation by Abosede A. George, Associate Professor, Department of History Barnard College — Columbia University.
