ESCRAVOS DAQUI, DALI E DE MAIS ALÉM: O TRÁFICO INTERNO DE CATIVOS EM CONSTITUIÇÃO (PIRACICABA), 1861-1880
José Flávio Motta
We study the internal slave trade characteristics in Constituição (Piracicaba) in the period 1861-1880, when the province of São Paulo was under the impact of the coffee culture expansion from the Paraíba Valley to the West. Using the registers of the transactions of slaves, we analyze some demographic (sex, age, origin) and economic (price) variables of the commercialized people. We consider, also, the information about the local of residence of the sellers, buyers, and their eventual attorneys, mapping the distinct attributes of the inter and intra provincial trades. Finally, we analyze some effects of slave legislation, mainly of the Ventre Livre Law of 1871. The results presented are part of a broader research, in which the internal slave trade characteristics are studied in various localities of the province of São Paulo during the last three decades of the Brazilian slavery.
