DAM – DIGITAL AFRICAN MEMORY PORTUGAL

The online Platform Digital African Memory in Portugal aims to research the history and influence of African presence in Portugal. By mapping and compiling dispersed and concealed information on a set of public and private archives, DAM looks to historically accompany this absent presence, underlining its scientific, artistic, political, and socio-cultural contributions throughout history. And, as such, contributes to: i) memorializing historical processes, moments and places relevant for the history of African and black presence in Portugal; ii) encouraging future research in various knowledge fields; iii) informing and amplifying the scope of the tours held by Batoto Yetu Portugal in the spaces of memory of African and black presence in the country.
