183 p., Explores how the Centro Cultural Orùnmilá [Orùnmilá Cultural Center] struggles for the substantive valuing of Afro-Brazilian culture and knowledge as a means to address contemporary racial inequality. Located in the city of Ribeirão Preto, in the interior of the state of São Paulo, Brazil, the Orùnmilá Center's cultural work and politics mobilizes a critical historical perspective and AfroBrazilian forms of embodied knowledge and learning as key sites and sources for the struggle to decolonize social relations and achieve racial equality.
