BHSS 2012 International Study Program in Brazil

After six months of studying the complexities of Brazilian culture and politics, Illumination Fund grantee Brotherhood/Sister Sol travelled from Harlem to Brazil with members of its International Study Program for four weeks. In addition to enjoying Brazil’s institutions and natural beauty, these talented students studied Afro-Brazilian history and the land use movement, met with the US Consulate, USAID and NGO’s like Centro Comunitario Lidia Dos Santos, and conducted their own research on critical issues observed on their excursions.
