Author: Herbert Knup
Subject(s): Brazil: Ethnicity and Population
Abstract: Coffee plantation in southern Minas Gerais. When the slavery economy went into crisis in the mid- Nineteenth century, landowners and government officials in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro encouraged European immigration to meet labor needs on the prosperous coffee plantations. Over 4 million Portuguese, Italians, Germans, Russians, Poles, and Spaniards entered Brazil from 1870 until 1930, and during the Twentieth century new nationalities like the Japanese and Lebanese immigrated. This immigration drastically changed the ethnic composition of the population which by 1930 had grown to over 30 million people, half of which considered themselves white.Plantação de café no sul de Minas Gerais. Com o fim do tráfico de escravos em meados do século XIX, fazendeiros de São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro estimularam a imigração de europeus para trabalhar nas prósperas plantações de café. Mais de quatro milhões de portugueses, italianos, alemães, russos, polonêses e espanhóis migraram para o Brasil entre os anos de 1870 a 1930 e, durante o século XX novos povos como japonêses e libanêses imigraram. Essa imigração mudou drásticamente a composição étnica da populaçllo que em 1930 tinha crescido em mais de 30 milhões de pessoas, metade das quais se consideravam brancos.
