Myths Around Black Brazilian Women from the Perspective of Black Feminist Theory

Professor Djamila Ribeiro will highlight the contributions of Black writers in regard to deconstructing the assumption of Brazil as a racial paradise. Drawing on key thinkers of Black feminism, Ribeiro will emphasize a critical, intersectional outlook with new forms of understanding and politics to break with the invisibility of Black women's lives.
