Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lu?'s Gonzaga Pinto da Gama (June 21, 1830 - August 24, 1882) was a Brazilian Romantic poet, journalist, lawyer and a proeminent abolitionist. Gama was born in 1830, to a Portuguese fidalgo who lost all his fortune with gambling, and Lu sa Mahin (also spelled Maheu), a young slave woman provenient of what is now the city of Elmina, in Ghana. She was famous for getting herself involved in many rebellions, such as the 1835 Mal Revolt and the Sabinada. In 1840, when Gama was 10 years old, his father sold him illegally, allegedly because of debts. Gama was bought by an alf rez named Ant nio Pereira Cardoso. Cardoso would try to sell him once more, but no one would buy Gama, since he was provenient from Bahia, and Bahian slaves had the fame of being runaways. Cardoso then decided to use Gama as a housekeeper in his farm in the city of Lorena.show more
