Abstract

This article analyzes the role played by freed people of color, and specially by Black and Meztiço freed women, in the process of land appropriation and physical construction of the portuguese episcopal  city of Minas Gerais. Many of them were heads of households and were legally able to appropriate urban and peri-urban plots, where they built houses, cultivated fields and exploited gold. Through the mapping (GIS) of municipal land data which refers to the "condition" and color of the landowners, we can analyze the distribution of individuals and social groups in Mariana’s urban space.
