Beyond Racism: Embracing an Interdependent Future. Brazil, South Africa, the United States.
Southern Education Foundation, Atlanta, GA.
This set of four publications examines contemporary power relations between persons of European and African descent in Brazil, South Africa, and the United States. Using a comparative and multidisciplinary approach, these publications focus on three democracies with large multiracial and multiethnic populations. "Overview Report," which details findings by the Southern Education Foundation's Comparative Human Relations Initiative, features first-person profiles of outstanding Brazilians, South Africans, and individuals from the United States who are involved in the struggle against racism and reflections of members of the working and advisory groups. "Three Nations at the Crossroads" contains in-depth portraits and accessible historical reviews of the three countries by Charles V. Hamilton, Ira Glasser, Wilmot James, Jeffrey Lever, Colin Bundy, Abdias do Nascimento, Elisa Larkin Nascimento, and Nelson do Valle Silva. "In Their Own Voices" is a topically organized reader featuring articles, quotes, and excerpts from speeches by participants in meetings sponsored by the Initiative. These participants include journalists, educators, and policymakers. "Color Collage" contains occasional papers on issues related to racism and inequality. Each volume contains references. A brochure describing the reports is appended. (SLD)
