The importance of Joaquim Nabuco in Brazil during the 19th and early 20th centuries is quite evident, as his actions played a crucial role in the abolition of slavery. He is the author of famous yet curiously lesser-known works such as “Abolitionism” and “My Formation.” Joaquim Aurélio Barreto Nabuco de Araújo was born in Recife on August 19, 1849, and died in Washington, United States, on January 17, 1910. Nabuco was a Brazilian politician, diplomat, historian, jurist, orator, and journalist who graduated from the Law School of Recife. He was one of the founders of the Brazilian Academy of Letters. On his birth date, August 19, the National Day of the Historian is celebrated.
