Chapter two examines Salvador’s relationship to the Portuguese colonial empire; the hierarchy of slavery; and the slave revolt of 1835, led by Muslim slaves, which was one of the most strategic slave insurrections in the Americas. The final sections deal with the abolition of slavery in 1888 and its consequences.
