(59.) Abdias do Nascimento, Brazil: Mixture or Massacre?
Niyi Afolabi declares the myth of Brazilian racial democracy and situates racial mixing in African enslavement before turning to Abdias do Nascimentos notion of Qnilombismo (237), "an Afro-Brazilian alternative that will not only unite all Brazilians but also give Afro-Brazilians their due in the articulation of Brazilian citizenship." Do Nascimento argues for an Afro-Brazilian Memory Week to celebrate Blacks' contributions, commemorate Quilombo maroon societies, and address the "amnesia" of the nation.
Add to this the contribution of Abdias do Nascimento, with a more black-African vision, working on the idea of quilombismo, which was a black space of reinvention of their own black culture and a dialogue of negotiation and confrontation with society.
