Who was Kimpa Vita?

  • One of the first African women to fight against European dominance in Africa during the colonial period & expose the racism and misogyny in the Catholic church.
  • The founder of the first black Christian movement in Sub-Saharan Africa.
  • She fought all forms of slavery, and tried to reconcile Christianity with African religions and beliefs, teaching people that black saints mingled with white saints in paradise. This was revolutionary, since Catholic priests in the area (Capuchins) taught that ONLY white saints could be found in heaven
