Africans Style

The first one wrote on the black child for two main reasons: for not being an element so found in books of infantile literature and for if adapting the Brazilian reality; second it writes to represent and to place the African culture and histories the disposal of the children, so that these are divulged. Still in relation to the workmanships and authors we can detach as communion enters both the work with three elements: the black, the child and the sort. They bring as element of quarrel the hair, and determinative form: the braids, to indirectly work directly and the culture and the color of the skin of the Africans and afro-descendants. Here it fit in them to analyze only the aspect of the race more let us say the directed question to racism, as it is constructed and had as behavior throughout centuries; using as subsidies the afros hair, are they with birotate or braids, and some interpretations or impressions that these can cause. Using the words of Nilma Gomes (2003): As well as racial democracy hides the conflicts racial, the hair style, the type of hairdo, manipulation and the direction they attributed by the citizen adopts that them can be used to camouflage the tinico-racial belonging, in the attempt to hide referring quandaries to the process of construction of the black identity. But such behavior can also represent a process of recognition of the African roots as well as of reaction, resistance and denounces against racism. still can express a life style. (Nilma Lino Gomes, 2003:138) When we launch the look of the beauty on the black, we take and it as beauty symbol, already we are making a movement of change of the look of the black on itself and the other and of the other on itself, and this change of looking at, the spaces that they obtain to occupy as beautiful they contribute for one better construction of the Brazilian racial relations.
