Historic Repair Policies in Brazil

Brazil, despite being the country with the second largest Black population in the world, presents insufficient actions regarding cultural policies dedicated to the Black population. This country, which was the last to abolish the slavery system, presents strong resistance in the creation of mechanisms for historical reparation. More than 130 years after the abolition of slavery, the laws with this bias remain timid and have cost Brazil’s Black population many efforts and social movements.

The banner-manifesto “Where are the blacks?” erected in 2018, during the Afro-Atlantic Histories art exhibition... was a milestone for the history of culture in Brazil and Afro Brazilian activism.
