Best Selling in Nonfiction See all. Unfreedom of The Press by Mark R. Levin , Hardcover Blue Book of Gun Values 40 40th Edition. February is Black History Month in the United States: a time to celebrate and contemplate the sacrifices and triumphs of members of the African American community in the struggle for civil rights.
But the United States is not alone in celebrating its African heritage this month. On February 9, Brazilians began the annual celebration known as Carnaval.
The Brazilian reality is one of paradox: a nation that views itself as a post-racial democracy while remaining riddled with racial oppression; an economy that creates immense wealth for the few while condemning many to extreme poverty; and a country celebrated for its environmental bounty while investing in its destruction. However, Brazil appears to thrive despite or perhaps, because of these conflicts, nourished by the contradictions that might have starved a different nation.
Carnaval today differs significantly from its earliest celebration in Brazil, reflecting the historical legacy and modern realities of the diverse Brazilian nation. Carnaval can be traced back to Portuguese colonists in Brazil in the s, who brought from Europe the tradition of holding indulgent celebrations before the beginning of Lent. Not only are the practices of Carnaval entangled in this apparent contradiction, but the very space Carnaval occupies within Brazilian culture is enmeshed as well.
