Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2006
This description of Abdu Ferraz's work was prepared when Abdu Ferraz was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2006.
Although almost half the population has some African ancestry, Brazilian schools do a poor job of teaching about African history, culture and the heritage of Afro-Brazilians. Abdu Ferraz is helping schools as well as businesses to embrace a more positive image of Africa and the opportunities it presents.
