In 1988, the Brazilian population commemorated the centennial of the Abolition of Slavery, and several public and private initiatives were set up to celebrate the occasion. That same year, the new Magna Carta of Brazil was promulgated in the form of a Constitution, which extended or established rights that so far had been denied to women, Black people, and the country’s Indigenous peoples. The celebration also gave rise to protests from groups who, rightly so, viewed as miserly these advances towards rectifying the race, gender, and class inequalities, which are so deeply rooted in the very fabric of Brazilian society. At the time, both the exhibition The Afro-Brazilian Hand: Meaning of the Artistic and Historical Contribution, organized by Emanoel Araujo and held at MAM, and the new Constitution resulted from the obstinate fight waged by those who recognized the need for shaping a society that, in being just and egalitarian, would also be more wholly committed to democracy. The lapse of time that separates the 1988 exhibition from the present one, Hands: 35 Years of the Afro-Brazilian Hand, was replete with historically significant events that ultimately established the relevance of the country’s cultural institutions, seeing that they affirm the central importance that both formal and nonformal education plays in combating the iniquities that have haunted our society over the centuries. Among them is structural racism, which, despite the gradual, albeit sluggish, advancements made, tragically continues to be a common characteristic of the everyday life of millions of Afro-descendants, who painfully still experience it.
