Before the Chocolate City – Africans in Southeast and East Asia (1800-1960)

 Dr. Clifford Joseph Pereira

(University of Hong Kong)

Awareness of the African presence in China in the late twentieth and especially the first two decades of the twenty-first century is well documented by social-science researchers and historians. However, the presence of Africans in Southeast Asia and East Asia is still being uncovered and the role of Africans during the period of European colonial hegemony in Asia has been largely forgotten. This presentation underlies the important role that Africans have played in the freedom of China including the Macau SAR, as well as Myanmar and Indonesia in the Second World War and much more.
