Unveiling the Mirror: Afro-Brazilian Identity and the Emergence of the Community School Movement.
Jones de Almeida, Adjoa Florencia
Comparative Education Review, v47 n1 p41-63 Feb 2003
Afro-Brazilian residents of urban favelas (outlying, unincorporated slums) have established community schools in response to lack of public schools. A study of three such community schools in Salvador, Bahia, focused on social justice issues, school efforts to rescue a Black identity denied by Brazil's official "racial democracy" rhetoric, internal struggles among teachers, and the integration of Black identity with the popular education movement.
