    Works

    • Blacks and Whites in Sao Paulo, Brazil, 1888-1988
    • For much of the twentieth century Brazil enjoyed an international reputation as a “racial democracy,” but that image has been largely undermined in recent decades by research suggesting the existence of widespread racial inequality.
    • Afro-Latin America, 1800-2000
    • While the rise and abolition of slavery and ongoing race relations are central themes of the history of the United States, the African diaspora actually had a far greater impact on Latin and Central America.
