This course offers an advanced introduction to the Afro-Brazilian political experience and Brazilian race relations. Portuguese colonialism and slavery led to Brazil having the largest African-descendant population in the Americas. The course will also evaluate different theories, methodologies, and strategies for examining the Black experience in Latin America. The aim of the course is to examine how Afro-Brazilians have resisted and continue to struggle against the socio-economic, political, and cultural aspects of racial oppression and domination. How have Black activists and organizations protested against racial discrimination? What public policies and laws have Black elected officials proposed to diminish racial inequality? What has the Brazilian government done in response to Black political participation, protest, and activism? Finally, the course will devote substantial attention to the origins, implementation, and controversy surrounding affirmative action and racial quotas in Brazil.
