Afro-Brazilians and the liberation struggle in South Africa

Institute for Global Dialogue (IGD)

The Institute for Global Dialogue (IGD) is an independent South African-based foreign policy think tank dedicated to the analysis of, and dialogue on the evolving international political and economic environment and the role of Africa and South Africa. It advances a balanced, relevant and policy-oriented analysis, debate and documentation of South Africa’s role in international relations and diplomacy.

UNISA Centre for Latin American Studies incubated at Institute for Global Dialogue is hosting on Afro-Brazilians and the liberation struggle in South Africa on 24 August 2016 in Pretoria.

The lecture will be delivered by Gerard Visiting Associate Professor of International & Public Affairs and Africana Studies, Dr Geri Augusto, Brown University, United States of America.

The lecture will focus on two key moments, namely: 1) the anti-apartheid movement in Brazil, which is a great window on the black movement itself, establishes the connection with South Africa and the search for "a meaningful Africa", and brings in other parts of Afro-Latin America, and 2) the contemporary movement for a more democratic Brazil--that includes struggling against what many see as genocide against black youth, but also ideas about a socially more just Brazil. This focus on Afro-Brazilian contemporary history will thus allow for modest gestures towards other Afro-Latin populations.

Date: Wednesday, 24 August 2016

Time: 9h30 for 10h00 to 12h00
