Black Political Mobilization in Brazil, 1975–1990

  • George Reid Andrews


This chapter examines the Afro-Brazilian political movement which emerged during the abertura, the eleven-year (1974–1985) process by which Brazil made a gradual, phased transition from military dictatorship to civilian democracy. The major scholarly treatments of abertura pay considerable attention to the organized opposition movements which emerged during those years; none of them, however, make any mention at all of the black movement.1
