Abstract

GUIMARAES, Antonio Sérgio Alfredo. A recepção de fanon no Brasil e a identidade negra. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2008, n.81, pp. 99-114. ISSN 0101-3300.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-33002008000200009.

In this article, I use bibliographical sources and testimonies to analyse the reception of Fanon by the Brazilian intellectual milieu, as well as his influence upon the formation of black identities. As I observe a lukewarm reception I argue it was due to three factors: First, the specificity of the Latin American left in the 1960's; second, a national and racial makeup totally opposed to racial conflicts; and third the small number of black professors and researchers at Brazilian universities who focus on the formation of black identity or the affirmation of racially oppressed subjects.

Keywords : Frantz Fanon; black identity; racially oppressed subjects; racial conflicts.
