Black Grenadians, or Afro-Grenadians, are Grenadian people of largely African descent. They are also referred to simply as African, Black. The term may also refer to a Grenadian of African ancestry. Social interpretations of race are mutable rather than deterministic, and neither physical appearance nor ancestry are used straightforwardly to determine whether a person is considered a black Grenadian. According 2012 Census, the 82% of the Grenada´s population is Black and the 13% is mixed Black and European (-Mulatto-. The European are only a 5% of the population).
After the transfer of Grenada to the United Kingdom by France, a country that once belonged the island, in 1776, began importing African slaves in Grenada, to use them to work on the cotton, sugar and tobacco plantations. This island was imported slaves than they are now Guinea, Sierra Leone (around 1,000 in 1856), Nigeria (specifically Igbo) and Angola. So, as of ethnicities such as Yoruba and Kongo. Were also imported at least some people of modern Ghana (specifically Fante people). Grenada's first census, in 1700, recorded 525 slaves and 53 freed slaves living on the island. Julien Fédon, a mulatto planter, led a violent rebellion on the island, leading a group of slaves. The rebellion led to the takeover of Grenada by Fedon, who after, he freed the slaves who participated in the rebellion. The struggle of the slaves for their rights continued during the year and a half, until the British regained control of the island. The British, as a punishment for disobedience and rebellion, executed the alleged leaders of the rebellion, however Fedon was never captured. Even though the British retained control of the island, tensions between the two groups - slaves and slaveholders - remained significant until slavery was abolished by a British law in 1834, and all slaves were freed in 1838.
