Black Women of Brazil
Mulheres Negras
Directed by Silvana Afram
Brazil, 1986, 25 minutes, Color, DVD, Voiceover
Order No. W99315
Despite official jargon to the contrary, Brazilians live in a racially segregated class system. This upbeat, sensitive and elegantly composed documentary, produced by Lilith Video Collective, looks at the ways Black women have coped with racism while validating their lives through their own music and religion.


    “An indispensable video work for any Latin American program.”
