Stanford University Press

This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the history and hierarchies of slavery in Santos, Brazil during the period from 1822 to 1888, and discusses how people become slaves, the differences in the treatment and opportunities available for slaves, and their paths of freedom. It considers how social stratification within the institution of slavery may have influenced its perception and perpetuation, and suggests that historians should continue to explore the multiple ways in which class, social status, and legal condition overlapped in revealing and meaningful ways.

Keywords:   slavery, Santos, Brazil, freedom, social stratification, social status, social class, legal status
