This book is a product of the series of conversations with the late Vanderlei José Mariá, a member of the Worker's Party (PT) in Brazil and one of the founding members of its black nucleus (Nucleo Negro), in 1988. Vanderlei was considered one of the Workers' Party's most promising young intellectuals during the mid-1980s, expressing an unusual hope and vision for the melding of the interests of the black movement with those of the (PT), helping to transform the PT into a party in both senses of the term—party as an expression of festivity and party as a form of political mobilization, organization, and discipline. His insights asserted his perspectives of Afro-Brazilian politics for a comunidadenegra which had wider implications for black politics and life–worlds in various nation–states.

Keywords:   Vanderlei Jose Maria, Worker's Party, Nucleo Negro, black movement, Afro-Brazilian, politics, comunidade negra, black politics
