Since Black into White: Thomas Skidmore on Brazilian race relations

Jerry Dávila, Zachary R. Morgan

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


Provides an interview with Thomas Skidmore, whose landmark study 'Black into White' (1974) questioned the assumption by Brazilians of their superiority (in contrast to Americans) in the handling of race relations. More recently, studies by Brazilian and foreign scholars have shown the persistence of racial problems in Brazil, even as the use of racial quotas has been gaining acceptance there while losing ground in the United States.
