The colonization of Africa by the European superpowers, starting with the Portuguese conquest of Ceuta in the early 15 th century to the Scramble for Africa under the New Imperialism in the 19 th century, has been a thoroughly discussed issue. It is coupled with the Transatlantic slave trade which is still affecting people of color in varying ways even after it was abolished over years ago. The period of colonization of Africa is well known for the nightmarish activities on the African continent as well as in Europe and in the Americas. Volumes have been written and are still being written in an effort to document the history and address the damage done to the African race and consequently the general balance and progress of the world at large. The reasons that motivated the colonization of Africa were the abundance of raw materials like copper, cotton, rubber, palm oil, cocoa, diamonds, tea and tin, which were the essentials of the European industry. There was also the need for a new and ready market for the products manufactured in Europe, and the African continent was and still mostly is a ready dumpsite. Another reason that contributed to the presence of Europeans in Africa was missionary duties.

Sara Baartman, called "Saartjie" the diminutive form , was born in in the Camdeboo valley in the eastern part of the Cape Colony. It is commonly thought she was born in the Gamtoos valley, but she moved there with her family only years after her birth. Sara Baartman spent four years on stage in England and Ireland. Early on, her treatment on the Piccadilly stage caught the attention of British abolitionists, who argued that her performance was indecent and that she was being forced to perform against her will. Ultimately, the court ruled in favour of her exhibition after Dunlop produced a contract made between himself and Baartman. It is doubtful that this contract was valid: it was probably produced for the purposes of the trial. Baartman also moved to Manchester , where she was baptised as Sarah Bartmann. He sold her to an animal trainer, S. Reaux, who made her amuse onlookers who frequented the Palais-Royal.
Like a tall golden goddess she emerges from the ocean. Wearing a black cutout monokini which she accessories with a long black and gold beaded neck piece, she glowed as she posed under Mauritian sun. With a sultry look, her famous hair cut and her body highlighted with gold shimmer, she's a vision of strength.. This is type of look could easily be considered a "sexy" shot, but this particular photograph comments nothing but respect.
