Bambara chief and slave

Bambara chief attended by slave


Figure of a Bambara chief attended by a slave. Slavery within Africa was more like serfdom than chattel slavery. In a royal household, slaves might do important work and become rich and influential themselves. Others, however, might find themselves worked to an early death in the gold mines.
