Racial Literacy: Antiracism as Education for Democracy

What role can schools play in building an antiracist culture in Brazilian society? How should teachers be trained to address this issue in the classroom? How basic understanding of political and legal concepts can foster racial solidarity? This research project examines the ways in which primary and secondary school teachers can contribute to racial literacy, an expression that designates knowledge of basic principles of civility that must be followed in the process of building a society committed to the consolidation of a democratic and racially inclusive society.
