Notes:
315 p., Examines expectations and experiences regarding the education of the black population in Santa Catarina. The expectations were observed in educational legislation, in speeches of the press and the province's government, which appeared mainly in the discussions about the Brazilian Law of Free Birth, with the emergence of the figure of the “ingênuo”. In the press, many articles pointed to black education as an important way to prepare to free labor, ensuring social order. In the official speeches of the government, the issue was addressed less frequently, defending the freedmen's education to prevent anarchy and enable the conscious vote.
