Cancelled--Slave Resistance in Brazil: Islam and African Religions Against Ethnicity

This event is cancelled.

Presented by Vinicius Marinho (University of Chicago). On January 25, 1835, the lalytul al-Qadr (Night of Power), a group of black Muslims mobilized five hundred slaves from other religious communities to join a rebellion. In Brazil, slave masters separated black people according to religion and language (ethnicity). Through religious connections, Muslims and members of traditional African religions joined forces. The partnership not only brought about the first significant threat to slavery in Brazil. It also made Afro-Brazilian religion public. Religion was strategically used to separate and unite; for and against slavery. This presentation asks, “how we can learn from positive alliances like this one to generate new mechanisms of racial resistance today?”
