Ethical ethnographic engagement is crucial for understanding the beautiful and harsh realities of Black women’s grassroots organizing amidst community and state violence. This talk describes how anthropological work with land and housing activists in Brazil can be a collaborative process that produces data, scholarship and creative works that support urban social struggles against housing evictions and forced displacements.
