Silenced: The Stripped Identity of the Enslaved Chinese

Enslaved of Latin America | Online Portfolio

After reflecting upon the various topics we have covered in HIS361, The Enslaved of Latin America, I was drawn to the central theme of identity construction, specifically, within the enslaved Chinese. I am a transnational adoptee. My parents adopted me from Guangdong, a province in Southern China when I was 9 months old. While learning about the enslaved Chinese who primarily came from Southern China from the same province, I was deeply intrigued and wondered if my past ancestors or great-great-grandparents could have been subjected to enslavement during the Manilla Galleon period or the era of the Cuban Coolie Trade. Identity construction is something that I grapple with personally, as I’ve struggled to determine my own identity versus how others perceive me. Within this Final Portfolio, specifically within my creative element, I attempt to document the identity construction of these enslaved Chinese throughout the 16th century up until the 19th century.
