          Abstract

          Neste texto refiro-me ao caso de Benkos Biohó como uma figura simbólica da resistência africana, afrodescendente e afrocolombiana dada desde os palenques (no Brasil utiliza-se a expressão "quilombos"), manifestações de resistência que começaram na África e mais tarde se reproduziram na América toda durante o tráfico de pessoas, a colonização e a escravização. Hoje estas estratégias estão sendo reinventadas e reformuladas pelos afrodescendentes, mulheres e homens, que nestes territórios se localizam. Quanto às formas ou métodos, foram sempre diversos, desde a luta armada até a exigência de liberdade nos tribunais. Mas sempre procuraram avanços, melhoras e progresso em um sistema opressor colonial.

          Translated abstract

          In this article I mention the case of Benkos Biohó as a symbolic figure of the african, afrodescendant and afrocolombian resistance, conducted by the "palenques" (known as "quilombos" in Brazil), manifestations of resistance that started in Africa and were reproduced later in America during human traffic, colonization and enslavement. Today, this strategies are reinvented and reformulated by the afrodescendants, women and men, that live in this territories. Regarding the ways and methods, these were always diverse, from the armed fight to the freedom demands in courts. But they always looked for advances, improvements and progress in an opressor colonial system.
