Portuguese slave traders are doing profitable business kidnapping people from the interior of Portuguese Mozambique and shipping them to Brazil. One slave ship, the São José Paquete Africa, is caught in rough seas today off Cape Town. At 2 a.m., the ship collides with submerged rocks, and sinks only 100 metres from shore. The captain, crew and half of the enslaved people make it to shore. The Africans will be re-sold in South Africa’s Western Cape on 29 December. The wreckage will be discovered by divers in the 1980s, and will be identified as from the São José Paquete Africa in the 2010s. On 2 June 2015, a memorial ceremony will be held on the site for the 200 enslaved Africans who perished on the ship.
