A hundred years ago, Mingoyo was the site of a major slave plantation owned by the al-Barwani, a family of Zanzibari-Omani slave traders, and their grandson still owns a large coconut grove in the village. This chapter presents a list of six extracts from interviews, which offers different memories of this plantation and of its significance after the end of slavery. The six interviewees described in the chapter are Bibi Esha Issa Baharia, Mohamed Halfan Nassor bin Hamisi Barwani, Sefu Selemani Makoreka, Rajabu Feruzi Ismaili, Sharifu Shehan Zaina, and Mzee Juma Sudi bin Juma. The interview shows that the present-day coexistence of the descendants of both slaves and owners in the villages results from a series of renegotiations of the hierarchical relationships of the slave-trading era. The interviews display a way of speaking about the past that is different from both professional historians and written sources of the period.
