An important yet overlooked event in Brazilian History:
It is generally well-known that the first martyrs to lay down their lives for the abolition of slavery were the brave freedom fighters of the Haitian Revolution led by Toussaint l’Overture in 1791.
It is also generally well-known that the white Presbyterian minister, Elijah Parish Lovejoy was the first martyr to sacrifice his life for the abolishment of slavery in the United States in 1837.
However, it is not generally known that in Brazil, four men, Luiz Gonzaga, João de Deus, Lucas Dantas, and Manuel Faustino were sent to the gallows for their participation in an insurrection to free the slaves and bring democracy to Brazil in 1798.
This event constitutes an important, yet overlooked link in the history of the fight for freedom and democracy, the abolishment of slavery, and Brazilian history.

On March 28 died in an automobile accident Professor John Manuel Monteiro, of the State University of Campinas (Unicamp), Brazil. Born in St. Paul, USA, Professor Monteiro had a PHD in Latin American history in the University of Chicago, taught at the University of North Carolina (USA) and Unesp. He also was researcher of Cebrap (Brazilian Center for Analysis and Planning), and for several years taught anthropology at Unicamp. He was a pioneer and biggest supporter of indigenous history studies in Brazil and published the classic book 'Negros da terra' in 1994. His death is an immeasurable loss to the fields of history and anthropology.
