LUNA, Francisco Vidal  and  KLEIN, Herbert S.. Escravidão africana na produção de alimentos. São Paulo no século 19. Estud. Econ. [online]. 2010, vol.40, n.2, pp.295-317. ISSN 0101-4161.

The utilization of slave labor in America was associated with export agriculture, although there was no slave regime which used slaves exclusively in such cultivation. Even in the areas most oriented toward exports, there was slave production of foodstuffs for subsistence and local market sales.  But in few cases was this activity as important as in the slave economy in Brazil particularly in the pioneer areas of coffee production in São Paulo in the first half of the 19th century. The analysis of this process of foodstuffs production is the object of this article.

Keywords : São Paulo; slavery; production of foodstuffs; agriculture.
