Title: The revolution of the ganhadores': Urban labour, ethnicity and the African strike of 1857 in Bahia, Brazil
Other Titles: Journal of Latin American Studies
Authors: Reis, João José
Issue Date: 1997
Abstract: This article discusses the 1857 African porters' strike in Salvador, Brazil. Mobilisation for this unique movement was organised through work groups, based on ethnic affiliation, within which Africans developed a street culture with its own rules, rituals and symbols, all of which were essential to the creation of the group's identity and to pursue resistance in the urban slavery environment. The movement lasted for a week and it may have been the first of its nature in the history of urban Brazil.
