Course Description

Traces more than three centuries of the history of slavery in Brazil, which imported more African slaves than any other nation in the Americas. Explores the efforts of slaves to resist the degradation of enslavement, their quest for human dignity, the reproduction of African cultural/ religious forms, and the struggles of Afro-Brazilians for social justice in the post-Emancipation era.
