Volume 1, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1433-0237



This paper was prompted by the 1988 celebration of a hundred years of freedom from slavery in Brazil. It looks at the attitudes of slaves and the contribution of Afrobrazilians to the country's culture and examines the opportunities available to 'free' Afrobrazilians today. The paper ends with a call for more research into the Afrobrazilian personality and situation in the context of his history.
