“STATE AND BLACK MOVEMENTS IN BRAZIL: (1980-2010) COOPERATION, CONTESTATION, OR AUTONOMY?”
This presentation focuses on the heterogeneity and dynamics of black militants, as well as the rhetoric used by presidents José Sarney (1985-1990), Fernando Henrique Cardoso (1995-2003) and Luís Inácio Lula da Silva (2003- 2010) concerning the racial issue. Furthermore, it aims to analyze the main racial cut-off institutions created under the initiative of the Executive Power, namely the Palmares Cultural Foundation in 1988, and the Secretary for Policies for the Promotion of Racial Equality (Seppir) in 2003.
Free and open to the public
