This chapter deals with the political behaviour of the European settlers in Africa by taking into account the case of the white community in Angola. More precisely, the aim will be to analyze the emergence of a form of Euro-African nationalism among Angolan-born whites between 1945 and 1975. Euro-African nationalism was the political protest carried out by a part of the Angolan white community (and some mestiços) 1 whose aim was the acquisition of Angola’s independence from Portugal. Euro-African nationalism saw the Angolan nation as a product of a cultural interaction between the European and the African social spheres and believed that whites had a political role in the fight for independence as well as in the formation of a nation state in Angola.
