“Being a Black Woman”by Naomi Bah

The attempt to document and manifest Black female voices in a kind of video collage.

What is a Mulatto?by Jota Ramos
In Brazil, the feeling of racial democracy is deconstructed as we discuss the whitening policies inserted by governments that valued white aesthetics and, as a consequence, the violence practised by white men against enslaved black women. The discourse that the mulatto is the expression of Brazilianness and Brazilian beauty is undone, since the authorization for extra-racial unions was aimed at the "improvement" of the race. "Mulatto” is the person who assumes the racist discourse and wants to approach whiteness; “negro” is the person who is conscious and committed to their people, their identity, and their cultural heritage. The mulatto is Negro.
