This project intends to promote a comparative study on the experiences of a group of black intellectuals who, working in the São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro press during the decades of 1880 and 1910, presented their own views on projects and processes of Brazilian national formation. From the intersection of documents as journalistic texts especially chronics , letters, personal and family papers, stories and novels, the research is directed to the strategies and political and cultural arrangements forged by the black intellectuals Machado de Assis, José do Patrocínio, Ignácio de Araújo Lima, João China, Arthur Carlos, Theophilo Dias de Castro and Bernardino Ferraz in the course of their lives, marked by a mixture of radical opposition and desire for social integration. In a dialogue with the literary criticism and press studies, this project is located between the historiographical investigations on experiences of black free men.
