Launch of Jacques D'Adesky's book

Cultne TV recorded at Livraria Travessa in Botafogo, RJ the launch of the book "A Brief History of Racism. Intolerance, Genocide and Crimes against Humanity", authored by the anthropologist Jacques d'Adesky, an Afro-European intellectual who has dedicated himself to to the study and academic production on this topic in Brazil, should be received as a significant contribution to the understanding of a phenomenon too important to be relegated to the sphere of common sense. Of particular interest to scholars of racism are the topics that address the evolution of this thought, from religious intolerance in countries such as Greece, the Roman Empire and ancient Egypt, through Christian anti-Judaism and Arab and Iberian proto-racism, which end up providing the initial justifications for the enslavement of Africans, both in the Americas and the Middle East, and which constitute a very little – and undeservedly – ??known chapter of history. From there, we move on to the construction of scientific racism, with the Aryan myth and the ideological bases of Nazism, with emphasis on anti-Semitism, eugenics and sociobiology, a recently proposed pseudoscience (1970s).

As a result, for many institutions and for many people, the period covered by the series of celebrations around the ephemeris is known as the Black July. Marking the month with activities related to debates on racial, gender and class oppression, the rise and insertion of black cis and trans women, for example, in politics was part of the strategy adopted to bring necessary reflections about the place occupied by this part of the population to the whole of Brazilian society, while, simultaneously, multisectoral articulations to face this reality are re-elaborated and discussed.
