The current Brazilian moment is characterized by the intensification of racism and the deepening of social and racial inequalities based on the dismantling of the State in what concerns social programs aimed at the most vulnerable populations. The advances achieved in the last decades – presently under threat – were obtained by combining several factors: mobilization and organization of the Black population; the contribution of international cooperation; the marches of 1995 and 2005, which are important moments in the fight against racism.
