This biography profiles Queen Nzinga Mbande, the leader of Angola during the early 17th century. Tracing her rise to the throne, the biography focuses on Nzinga's dealings with Portuguese officials, who had colonized the region and were securing African captives as slaves. The biography also addresses Nzinga's attempt to make her kingdom a safe haven for escaped slaves.
