Alfredo D'Amato

Ferreira Governo, Sao Tome & Principe

65 year old Nenezinha stands beside the worker's quarters, known as 'Senzala', where she has been living since she arrived from Cape Verde in 1968. She came to work for white landowners during the era of Portuguese colonial rule and after independence she stayed on living in the same accomodation. Nenezinha worked 25 years for the whites and says: 'we use to work as a slaves with our babies on the back'. However she still looks back with nostalgia at a time when she says people were kinder to each other.
