Two societies, the USA and Brazil, are dominated by a racialized capitalism with roots the slave plantation. In recent weeks, the mass Black Lives Matter protests in the USA have created the greatest social upheaval since the 1960s. Initiated by the Black masses and with a deeply multiracial and working-class participation, this movement has put forward an agenda of revolutionary change. In Brazil, the working class, especially Black people, precarious workers and favela residents, have been rising up against the neofascist Bolsonaro regime, in the wake of massive political/institutional crisis,  police murder, and a brutal capitalist retrenchment. What does it take to uproot these racist, capitalist structures in the USA, Brazil, and the world? To that end, theoretical and practical perspectives will be addressed.

Ndindi Kitonga is a Black Lives Matter activist based in Los Angeles. She organizes around homelessness, education and mutual aid.

Rhaysa Ruas is a young Afro-Brazilian attorney, researcher, and social activist based in Rio de Janeiro.
