Behold the City! Culture, Race and Identity in the Brazilian City of Salvador, Bahia
The city of Salvador, Bahia is Brazil's fourth largest. It's 80% nonwhite and known as Brazil's "Black Rome," where Afro-Brazilian culture such as the dance samba, the martial art capoeira and Afro-Brazilian religion of Candomblé define the historical and contemporary identity of the city that was Brazil's first colonial capital, a city that Brazilians commonly refer to as “the soul of Brazil.”
