Kimberle Williams Crenshaw: Racial Democracy in Brazil, Part 1

Commentator Kimberle Williams Crenshaw spent some time recently in Latin America's largest country, Brazil. She danced and marveled at the country's rich cultural tapestry, but she also observed color-based discrimination. In the first of two reports, NPR's Tavis Smiley and Crenshaw explore the "myth of racial democracy" in Brazil.
