Brazilian Black History: Dr. Luiz Gama, Patron of the abolition of Slavery

 

(This tour will be offer with Live Stream from the Streets of Salvador and also from Home, so different time zones join – check options) Luís Gonzaga Pinto da Gama was born in Salvador ( 1830) but most of his live he lived in São Paulo. He passed away in 1882 (6 years before Slavery was officially over in Brazil) and was a Brazilian “Rábula” (self-taught lawyer), abolitionist, orator, journalist and writer. I am also a lawyer and, of course, this tour will have lots of the “Gama style” of judicial practice. I am also a lawyer, so expect in this tour lots of history and lawsuits that made Dr. Luis Gama to become of the most fascinating abolitionist in our history. Today Luis Gama is the Patron of the Abolition of Slavery in Brazil.

Heygo started as a way for co-founders John and Liam to keep exploring new places. As avid travellers themselves, they wanted to help people stay connected with the world and for those in the travel industry to continue doing what they love.

They believe that travel is an incredibly important way to break down cultural barriers and understand the world through other people’s eyes. They also recognize it is often a privilege reserved for the few. For many people, hopping on a plane half-way around the world is out of reach and comes with serious consequences for our planet’s health.

John and Liam realised that there needed to be a way to embrace the culture of other countries in an environmentally conscious way; to still travel when family obligations makes it difficult to get away; and to keep exploring even when an injury or disability means travelling is harder.

So that’s why they created Heygo – a travel specific live-streaming platform. One that would allow local guides to share the places they know best with the hope that it can bring people around the world closer together.
