Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro
(UFRJ)
Brazil

Almost 45% of all Africans who were victims of
the Transatlantic Slave Trade entered in the
Americas through Brazilian ports, and the
majority of them stayed in the country
Between the end of the XVIII century and the
beginning of the XIX century, the centre of the
slave trading activity was in Brazil, mostly in Rio
de Janeiro city
Brazil has today the first place in population of
African descendents, outside Africa almost
half of the Brazilian population


Long struggle for a real inclusion of AfroBrazilian History in the curricula
9 January 2003 : Law # 10.639 made
compulsory the teaching of History and AfroBrazilian Culture in the publics and private
schools of Brazil
June 2004 : the National Council of Education
published some orientation to teach AfroBrazilian and Africa History and to prepare
teachers to do it in the schools.


Why there was the need for a law to to
validate the presence of such an evidently
fundamental content in Brazilian History ?
> Brazilian history of denial of Africans and
African Slavery as fundamental in our
history; > academic racism;
> elitistic bias of the curricula choices
> fear of stimulating conflicts ( the myth of
our racial democracy would be broken)




many school teachers do want to change



students, inside the University, want to make
their studies part of this new approach



Black social movement struggles for this

Prepare the teachers
Produce materials, tools
Choose the approach and the subjects
Dialogue with other disciplines
Dialogue with the academic world


Many projects have been done .
Ex: www.acordacultura.org.br
Some texts have been produced
The subject is ‘on the table’ of the most
important universities and research centers
Some government support has appearded
(but there is still a long way to go...)


We need to share what we have done in the
field
We need to learn to work together with other
countries
We need to establish close communication
with the teachers
We need to make a strong network
connecting us with places and peoples
interested in the TST subject
