Culture is Our Weapon: AfroReggae in the Favelas of Rio


Product Information

"At central stage of this ground-breaking book is the extraordinary work of Grupo Cultural AfroReggae, a Rio-based NGO which seeks to divert favela residents from the path of poverty and violence, through music and apprieciation of black culture. AfroReggae are a force for real social change in the Rio favelas; they are also a role model for what is possible when an oppressed community decides to resist the twin onslaught of violence and poverty. Wtih international tours, record deals, and now a feature film, 'Favela Rising', AfroReggae are taking favela culture to the world."

Published by the Latin America Bureau, authored by Patrick Neate and Damian Platt.
