Bahia - Brasil

The history of Afro-Brazilian people spans over three centuries of racial interaction, Brazil was consistently the largest destination for African slaves. Approximately 4 million enslaved Africans were imported to Brazil, mainly to Salvador de Bahia to work the sugar cane plantations.

By the time of slavery's end, Afro-Brazilians faced a number of cultural challenges, both state-sponsored and societal. The end of the Brazilian dictatorship brought much more civil liberties and eventually the criminalization of discrimination; but today we still need to draw attention to racially aggravated ills caused by social practices and fight important issues such as income gap, education and social perpetuation of racial stereotypes.
