“The History of Capoeira in the United States”

The African American Contribution - Written by Jamie Morgan Bey

Capoeira de Angola is a traditional Afrikan art form. During the Atlantic slave trade Capoeira traveled to Brazil where it became an outlawed martial art. Law 487 forbidded the practice of Capoeira where death was the consequence. The government used the practitioners of Capoeira as front-line troops in the war against Paraguay, where over 65,000 African-Brazilians died. After the abolition of slavery in 1888 it still remained outlawed. Today Capoeira is a part of Brazilian society and practiced all around the world. This book is the fundamental history of the roots and how it flourished, with the African American Contribution. The untold true story!
