Description

The African warrior queen Nzinga called herself “King” and led her armies with a sword around her neck (swordlace!). She also regularly devastated Portuguese colonizers with her impeccable ability to throw shade and kept a harem of men (get it Nzinga). She was an absolute force—and it’s high time that more people know her story.

Join us as we track Nzinga’s tumultuous reign, explain why she’s the OG Black Widow, and insult Nzinga’s tool of a brother at every chance we get.
