Publication Details Click to collapse Cite/Export


  • "Highlights the strong oral tradition of slave descendants from the former plantations of the Souza Breves family, in the south of the state of Rio de Janeiro. It rescues vivid details about the illegal trade of slaves and the experiences of slaves and freed ancestors. The jongo and oral tradition are part of the cultural and family heritage that became a core aspect of the 'maroon' identity of these communities. Both support broader political struggles against racism and contribute to ensuring collective ownership of land."--Container insert.
