Fighting Racism, Racial Pride are Themes of Some Top Rio Carnival Samba Group's Parades

By Clip Syndicate
Racial pride and battles against racism are themes for some of the flashy samba group's presentations and street parties as Rio de Janeiro's flamboyant Carnival parades enter their second night. Some samba groups parading on Monday have put together dance numbers that honor Afro-Brazilian heritage, and one of them built a giant Nelson Mandela float. It's meant to remind people of his fight for equality, while also calling for more racial integration in the Southern American nation, which has more black people than any other nation aside from Nigeria.
