GOMES, Nilma Lino. Black culture and education. Rev. Bras. Educ. [online]. 2003, n.23, pp.75-85. ISSN 1809-449X.

This article is focused on the relation between culture, black culture and education. Black culture is presented as a cultural peculiarity - historically constructed by a specific ethnic / racial group - extant in the Brazilian way of life, independent of its ethnic origins. However, it predominates among the descendants of enslaved Africans in Brazil, that is, among the black segment of the population. In the specific case of Brazilian school education, it is understood that the discussion on black culture cannot disregard the existence of racism and inequality between black and white people in our society. Such a consideration will distance us from the educational practices, which still insist on classifying black culture as part of our exotic folklore and will enable us to construct a political posture with respect to the racial issue in Brazilian education.

Palavras-chave : cultural diversity; black culture; education.
