The author surveys educational programmes for black youth, as developed by the Brazilian Black Social Movement. Since 1982 these programmes have state support, in recognition that social mobility and schooling go hand in hand. The article gives a comprehensive view of the history of conditions of access to education given to young blacks in Brazil. Furthermore, it describes a number of programmes carried out by the Palmares Foundation at the Ministry of Culture, aimed at integrating the black youth into the country's development process while at the same time presenting Afro-Brazilian cultural values.
