Brazil in Black and White: Skin Color and Higher Education

“Am I black or am I white?” New affirmative action quotas for higher education in Brazil—one of the world’s most racially diverse nations—launch a controversial dialogue about race and identity as this Wide Angle report follows five college candidates from diverse backgrounds competing for a spot at the University of Brasília. In addition, lawyers from the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund visit Brazilian civil rights leaders to discuss the legal challenges of affirmative action. With nationwide surveys identifying more than 130 different categories of skin color, who will be considered “black enough” to qualify for the new racial quotas? (57 minutes)
