Summary:
Kwame Dixon breaks new ground in this study by examining how Black politics, both cultural and formal, have been articulated in Brazil and the ways in which the state responds to Afro-Brazilian demands for equality. Using Salvador, Bahia as a case study, Dixon unpacks how Afro-Brazilians there reconfigure and challenge notions of citizenship, race, gender, territory, belonging, and national identity.
