Resumo
This dissertation focuses on the study of freedom suits filed by slaves against their masters, both in Brazil and in the United States of the 19th century, which allows the analysis of the influence of freedom suits in the social and political context of slavery as a whole. Using the ideas sustained by Edward Palmer Thompson, the idea is to comprehend the role of law within the slavery of African-Americans. Utilizing the method of comparative studies, the paper will demonstrate the differences between suits filed in Brazil and the United States, to reflect upon the actions taken by lawyers in both countries, as well as a general perspective of their societies. Through this analysis, this study intends on focusing on the influence of important judicial rulings in the creation of a fair and just society in regards to racial inequalities. The dissertation also analyzes the mechanisms that allowed the conformation of the capitalist system and the employment of slave work, as well as the consequences of such.
