Social Impact of Investment on Racial Equality in Brazil
Afro-Brazilians represent the largest racial group within Brazilian society. The country’s economic, demographic, cultural and genetic landscape is undoubtedly affected by the African legacy. Given Brazil’s economic and social development over the past decade, and the creation of a robust middle class, addressing the question of racial equity as an element of Brazilian democracy has become increasingly important.
On March 27th, the Brazil Institute, in partnership with the Africa Program, the Baobá Fund for Racial Equity and Africare, will be hosting a forum on The Social Impact of Investment on Racial Equality in Brazil. Panels will convene supporters and advocates of racial and economic equity to discuss issues and challenges facing people of African descent in Brazil and the Global South.
