Yo Soy Negro

Tanya Maria Golash-Boza

University Press of Florida

This chapter considers the implications of the conceptualization of blackness for multicultural reforms in Peru. It describes multicultural reforms that the Peruvian government has recently adopted as part of a project funded by the World Bank. These reforms, which use discourses of cultural and ethnic differences, are a dramatic change from the official discourse that Afro-Peruvian inclusion should be achieved through incorporation as opposed to a recognition of differences. Drawing from interviews with Afro-Peruvians, the chapter explains how Afro-Peruvians discuss their inclusion in the Peruvian nation and their desire (or lack thereof) for cultural recognition.

Keywords:   blackness, multicultural reforms, Peru, ethnic, Ingenieros, black culture, Afro-Peruvian, cultural recognition
