This essay discusses the theme of cultural diversity and its implications in History teaching. The adoption of Law nº 10.639, in 2003, which introduced the obligation of teaching the African-Brazilian and African history and culture in the basic education syllabus, contributed to the discussion of this issue, by allowing a rupture with the Eurocentric education model, and the construction of a multicultural education system in Brazilian schools.
