The New Idea
Regina is enabling the black community in Brazil to participate in Brazilian television, an area that has historically excluded the country's eighty million black people. By increasing black participation both on and behind the screen, Regina is developing mechanisms to democratize Brazilian television and to establish a national, black television network.
