(p.153) Chapter Six Navigating the Ethno-Racial State
Becoming Black Political Subjects

Tianna S. Paschel

Princeton University Press

The recent wave of ethno-racial reforms in Colombia and Brazil not only institutionalized black political subjects into the law but they also created ethno-racial state apparatuses that catalyzed the institutionalization of black movement actors. This chapter examines how everyday political practices in these new contexts—in which blacks were now legitimated as the subjects of rights and in which a myriad of new state institutions managed ethno-racial issues—have constructed new kinds of black political subjects in Colombia and Brazil. It draws on government documents, interviews, and insights from ethnographic fieldwork to make sense of how black movement actors in Colombia and Brazil navigated the new political landscape.
