This chapter shows how, in the cities of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, black thinkers took full advantage of reinstated freedoms of speech and association to resume older organizations and publications, and to form new ones. Even the titles of their newspapers, like Alvorada, Novo Horizonte, and Mundo Novo, reflected the prevailing mood of hope and renewal. “In Sao Paulo, as in the rest of Brazil,” one postwar Paulistano black newspaper proclaimed, “the black man is in motion, trying to get back to the work of definitively conquering those fundamental citizenship rights . . . once dreamed of by our great family.” Yet even as they returned, after a seven-year hiatus, to their long-standing project of publicly demanding full citizenship for Brazilians of color, black thinkers framed their politics of belonging in distinctly new terms.
