Aiming to continue the studies established the basic scientific research, now we will be dedicated to free Africans. This category, established after the banning of the slave trade in 1831. With this restriction, the slaves on ships should remain imprisoned for 14 years under the tutelage of the Brazilian state, provided that "apprentices" and then return to Africa. However, this did not happen and some of them were sent to the Fábrica de Ferro São João do Ipanema- Sorocaba-SP. This paper aims to analyze the free Africans in the venture, their daily lives, struggles, resistance, the role played by them and the exchange of manpower between the Fábrica de Pólvora da Estrela- RJ. Furthermore, we aim to understand what were the political and social implications of free Africans from Ipanema, during the slave system, the first phase of the Second Empire, in which fear of uprisings and revolts by the Lords was a constant. Therefore, we also seek reflections on the imperial period studied, since it was a moment of great discussion and policy measures related to the lives of slaves and the system as a whole, thus bringing great consequences for the nation.
