Defining frontiers: black identity and images on United States and Africa from O clarim da Alvorada newspaper (1924 - 1932)


This work aims to analyses news and images on United States and Africa diffused by the São Paulo black newspaper “O Clarim da Alvorada” (1924 - 1932). It is worth mentioning that this was a leading publication among the newspapers known as “Paulista Black Press". Most of the information on foreign matters (mainly United States and Africa) were gathered from American newspapers: “Chicago Defender” and “Negro World”. On one hand, the self-determination of African-Americans and the struggles against imperialism in Africa were taken by Brazilian blacks as examples for political action on the other hand, they completely refuted the racial segregation in United States. The arguments made by journalists on the situation of either African-Americans or Brazilian blacks were central to a plan for integration of black population into Brazilian society. (AU)
