        Affirmative Action and the USA | Wide Angle

        Brazil has labeled itself a "racial democracy," holding the belief that it has escaped the racism that has plagued the United States. The introduction of affirmative action, however, has forced the country to abandon this myth and start addressing deep-seated racial issues that have long been denied or ignored. In this video from Wide Angle, meet Humberto Adami, a civil rights attorney who has called in the help of lawyers from America’s NAACP in his effort to secure equal rights for Afro-Brazilians.
