About the Project

Afro-Indigenous Brazilian Struggles for Recognition: Videos & Photos
Planning Grant

This archive was created by independent artists from Rio de Janeiro, recording video from the early 1980s, as activists of human-rights movements, especially Afro, Feminist and Indigenous Movements. The resulting videotape archive spans two decades of socio-political history. The non-profit Enugbarijo Communications, founded in 1981, recorded the social movements of the 1980s that led to the 1988 re-writing of the Brazilian Constitution and continued their work into the 21st century.
