AGUDELO, Carlos. AFRO-DESCENDANT MOBILIZATIONS IN LATIN AMERICA: A PANORAMIC VISION OF SOME EXPERIENCES AGAINST EXCLUSION AND FOR THE RIGHT TO IDENTITY. colomb.int. [online]. 2010, n.71, pp. 109-126. ISSN 0121-5612.
In a global context especially influenced by the obviousness and the recognition of the multicultural feature of contemporary societies, and in which the idea of citizenship is changing, this text refers to the case of Afro-descendant populations in Latin America. We present an overview of some of their experiences of organization and political mobilization that is part of an ongoing study. The examples presented show the continuity between specific claims related to racial discrimination and cultural rights articulated with a discourse of civic integration.
