1st Black Brazilian Women Intellectuals International Conference: Quilombo as Global Black Solidarity in the Past, Present and Future
October 29 - November 19, 2021
Virtual Platform

This event sheds light on the different generations of Black Brazilian women as producers of knowledge and agents of liberation. Despite intersectional oppressions, Black Brazilian women have a long and rich tradition in the national and international struggle against racism and sexism and for social justice. They forge innovative concepts of citizenship, democracy and rights that expand the decolonization power of the African diaspora. However, his legacy remains invisible both in Brazil and abroad. In this event, we will highlight the various contributions of Black Brazilian women to the understanding and transformation of society through their knowledge, memories, affections, bodies and practices, making the Quilombo  a real practice until today.


IV - Politics of Education, Representation and Decoloniality in knowledge production.
November 18th, 2021. 6 pm - 8:00 pm EST
The engagement of Black women in knowledge production goes beyond the limits of formal education and Eurocentric science. Women have played a central role in the development of anti-racist pedagogies in Brazil. Such pedagogies challenge the separation between body, mind and emotion and elaborate new perspectives for the future. The knowledge production of Black women as a counter-hegemonic and decolonial practice is the focus of this panel.
