Brazil, the United States, and Transnational Struggles Against Racial Discrimination At first glance, the recent creation in Brazil of policies to pursue racial integration – which include admissions quotas in most public universities – was a sudden reversal of doctrines that denied the existence of discrimination and racial inequality. With a closer look, we see a history of struggles that led to changes in Brazil’s racial poliltics. This presentation will reflect on the presence of the United States in the history of those struggles, both as one of the challenges black Brazilians have faced in spotlighting discrimination, and as a counterpoint to the process building practices that combat discrimination.
