This project aims to study the experiences of black families who settled in Belo Horizonte, during the first decades of the city's history. Special attention will be given to those consisting mainly of migrants from various regions of the state of Minas Gerais and other regions of the country, but will also be investigated trajectories of households consisting of freedmen and their descendants who inhabited the Village of Corral del Rey, core population that gave rise to Capital. We are interested in knowing how to set up the experience of freedom for these families, in a specific urban context: a city that is constituted under the sign of modernity and the Republic, as opposed to references from colonial past and slavery. What were the projects created by these families and how they conducted themselves in the city? The research will involve the production and analysis of oral sources, which will be addressed in dialogue with diverse documentation produced under administrative institutions, police, medical, notary, of the press and religious, over the period in question.
