Sample text

More than half a million slaves came during the seventeenth century. Over a period of about 350 years, an estimated 3 million to 4 million African slaves were brought to the country. Slavery is a very cruel practice. Most of Brazil’s slaves were taken from their homes in the Portuguese colonies of Africa. Families were separated and local cultures shattered. The slaves were transported across the Atlantic Ocean in a very inhumane manner, crowded into filthy ships with little food and water. After arriving in Brazil, they continued to receive very poor treatment.

This pattern of settlement saved money for Portugal’s rulers. It meant, however, that early Brazilian agriculture was based on the establishment of large estates, rather than the family farms that became the mainstay of agriculture in most of what is now the United States and Canada. The Portuguese immigrants came from many different groups. They included the people who received the land grants and other rich individuals. They also included soldiers and workers who often intermarried with American Indians and later with African slaves.

Often, the country’s economy depended heavily on a single item, such as sugar, gold, rubber, or coffee. This trend has contributed to a “boom-and-bust” economic roller-coaster. Periods of huge wealth have often been followed by eras of grinding poverty for the country and many of its people. Coffee became a major Brazilian crop in the 1820s, and the growing and shipping of coffee greatly helped spur the growth of inland São Paulo and its port city of Santos. Coffee remains an important crop today, although it contributes a much lower percentage of the country’s wealth than it did in the past.
