This description of Maria Aparecida Silva Bento's work was prepared when Maria Aparecida Silva Bento was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1993.
Maria Aparecida Silva Bento ("Cida") established a center to work with labor unions, employers and the government to help them recognize racism and promote equal opportunity. Her effectiveness results from a unique combination of high technical competence and close philosophical and actual affinity with Brazil's awakening Black Consciousness social movement.
