Gilberto Freyre (1900 – 1987) was a Brazilian sociologist, anthropologist, historian, writer, painter, journalist and congressman, born in Recife, Northeast Brazil. He is one of the great Brazilian cultural interpreters of the 20th century, best-known for his sociological treatise Casa-Grande & Senzala (published in English as The Masters and the Slaves), a classic of modern cultural anthropology and social history. Olinda is a historic city in the Brazilian state of Pernambuco, located on the country's northeastern Atlantic Ocean coast, just north of Recife and south of Paulista. Olinda features a number of major touristic attractions, including a historic downtown area and the Carnival of Olinda, a popular street party, similar to traditional Portuguese carnivals, with the addition of African influenced dances.
