Becoming Black Political Subjects

Tianna S. Paschel

Princeton University Press

This chapter analyzes the new laws passed by Brazilian and Colombian states in the wake of the 2001 Third World Conference against Racism in Durban, South Africa. Unlike the cultural and territorial rights granted to subsets of the black populations in the 1990s, these new policies were broader and wrapped in the language of racial equality and inclusion. The categories of political contestation also seemed to change in this period from “black” to hyphenated national categories such as “Afro-Brazilian,” “Afro-Colombian,” and “Afro-Peruvian.” In this way, the new wave of reforms represented a considerable departure from the multicultural policies adopted throughout Latin America just a decade before.
