Abstract:This dissertation explores various elements and issues of the black movement in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, through activists' personal stories, intra- and inter-movement politics and dynamics, and the diasporic character of the movement. I argue that the interplay of racial frameworks and personal experience are critical in the formation of black activists, particularly in the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality. Without black movement frameworks, black activists were often left confused by certain experiences in their lives, regardless of their experiences with injustice and inequality that can lead people to question existing frameworks. The struggle over frameworks, which include ideas for restructuring society and resources, are central to the work of the black movement. The dissertation explores critical questions and insights about race, class, gender, sexuality, and diaspora that emerge from the movement; the interrelationships and constitutive nature of such concepts point out the inseparability of experiences, culture, politics and frameworks. The work of black movement organizations, like the United Black Movement, Niger-Okan and the African carnival groups, not only advances frameworks and exposes people to the centrality of race and racism in the fabric of Brazilian life, but also educates activists and provides them with spiritual, financial and emotional sustenance. Despite pressures to leave the movement—from frustrations with and tensions within the black movement, pressures from family, and the need for greater financial security—I argue that the ability to sustain activists remains vital to the movement. The transnational flow of ideas, symbols, music, people, dances, styles, and knowledge influences not only the black movement, but also the identities of activists and potential activists. Collectively, what emerges is a partial picture of the lives of activists, the black movement, and the ways in which race, class, nation, sexuality, gender and diaspora play out in Brazil.
