The Hierarchies of Slavery in Santos, Brazil, 1822-1888
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the history of the abolition movement and the emancipation of slaves in Santos, Brazil. It investigates how a city that had been more dedicated to slavery than most other places in southeastern Brazil could declare itself “free of slavery” two years before the “golden proclamation” ended official slavery in 1888. The chapter also highlights the fact that the emancipation of slaves in Brazil did not end strong ties of dependency between slaves and their former masters, and that the opportunities for people of color remained terribly limited.
