Afrocidadanização - Ações Afirmativas e Trajetórias de Vida by Reinaldo da Silva Guimarães

By Reinaldo da Silva Guimarães

Quando Reinaldo da Silva Guimarães propôs pesquisar a trajetória profissional dos bolsistas de ação social formados pela PUC-Rio, ele adotou sua própria história como referência intelectual e emocional para compreender as percepções narradas pelos entrevistados. Estes apontam para um contexto pautado na perseverança e no desejo de superação, mostrando uma realidade pouco conhecida e difícil de ser traduzida, mas repleta de simbolismos: a realidade das relações raciais no Brasil. A trajetória do autor reflete e dá essência e concretude ao conceito de afrocidadanização: nascido em comunidade pobre, Reinaldo conseguiu superar diversos momentos difíceis e ingressar na universidade. Como um dos protagonistas dessa história de "sucesso", ele aproveita sua narrativa para explicitar o processo de construção de identidade racial. Este livro foi produzido em regime de coedição com a PUC-Rio. Prefácio de Elisa Larkin Nascimento.
