Abstract:Investigation into what Spaniards of the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries thought about Black Africans, and why they thought the way they did. The study is based on references to Black Africans found in archives, in proverbs and popular sayings, in drama, poetry and prose works. The author concludes that Spaniards were no more and no less prejudiced than anybody else. If Spain has never been faced with serious racial conflict between black and white, neither have the circumstances in which racial strife could develop ever existed there. Notes.
