(p.155) Conclusion
Afro-Politics and Civil Society in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil

Kwame Dixon

University Press of Florida

The conclusion summarizes the argument of the book and presents new areas for research. It will be important to pay close attention to the following: the impact of the new affirmative action laws in Salvador as well as Black access to the university in Salvador and Bahia; how Salvador’s slowly rising new Black political class will negotiate power away from the old white ruling hierarchy and how this will play out; given the deep history of racial discrimination, how the new Black political class will address (if at all) racial and social inequality in health, education, employment, and the media (digital and social); what kind of new economic opportunities and structures, if any, will be available for the masses of Salvador, who currently due to historically inscribed forms of discrimination are locked out of key positions or located at the very bottom of the economic pyramid; and how Afro–civil society, cultural groups, and blocos will respond to the rise of a new Black political class.
