Afro-Politics and Civil Society in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil

University Press of Florida

This chapter addresses the polemical debates surrounding the struggle for equality, civil rights, and specifically affirmative action laws in Brazil from the 1930s to the present. This historical time frame is important as it provides a perspective on how Afro–civil society groups have sought justice by arguing that the country’s educational institutions were de facto racist and socially rigged against Black, indigenous, and poor Brazilians.
