The purpose of this conference is to bring together academics and activists from the U.S. and Brazil working on race relations.This two-day event aims to make possible a debate across disciplines, geography, and theoretical and practical perspectives. The discussion focuses on the following questions: What is the state of race relations in Brazil? What are the emerging theories and praxes effective in locating, addressing, and redressing racial injustice? Can there be global theories on race that link the Brazilian social realities to those of other countries of the Americas? The conclusions will generate plans and resources for building social justice in Brazil and throughout the Diaspora.
