Recently, race issues have become point of departure for the construction of educational policies in Brazil (a country which always denied the existence of racism and constructed its idea of a nation representing itself as a “racial democracy”). Quotas on universities, politics of knowledge production and the insertion and revision of contents in school curricula are some examples of these policies. The questions addressed in this article are: is it a global process, or would it be the historical protagonist role of the Brazilian Black Movement that determines the reinforcement of this agenda on national scale? Is this process about the “disembedding” of scales of politics, or is it about the Black Movement´s “politics of scales” - which mobilizes actors, arenas and instruments on different scales in order to strengthen its struggle and to construct public policies?
