Another repost of a blog entry I made for Provisions Library on June 6, 2011:
Brazil: A Racial Paradise? is one of four videos, part of the Black in Latin America series produced by Professor Henry Louise Gates, Jr. In this video, Professor Gates explores how modern Brazilian culture is influenced by its African heritage. In the process he examines the racism plaguing this “rainbow nation” post slavery. Other countries featured in this series include the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Cuba, Mexico, and Peru.
All four videos are temporarily available for viewing on PBS’s website. For more about this series and access to videos in the Black in Latin America series, click here.
Stream it for free while you can.
