Description: This collection focuses on the Afro-Brazilian culture of the state of Bahia in northeastern Brazil and its link to politics during the 19th century and up to today. An international group of scholars from various disciplines offers historical and contemporary perspectives on central issues facing Afro-Brazilians: their relationship to the state and the place of Afro-Brazilian culture in the larger Brazilian society. Topics addressed include the relationship between free and freed 19th century Afro-Brazilians and the state, the black militia, the candomble religion, land reform, and contemporary cultural movements.
