About the Magazine
On May 13, 2015, we launched the New DEGASE African-Brazilian Studies Center (NEAB-ND). It was the date of the 127th anniversary of the signing of the Golden Law that officially ended black slavery in Brazil. However, for the Brazilian Black Movement, this date has another meaning, the National Day to Combat Racism is celebrated. The fight against racism is the first concern of our group. From this perspective, we launched Revista AÚ with the intention of sharing with actors from outside the socio-educational system the actions developed by NEAB-ND.AÚ is a movement in capoeira. A blow with multiple variations and possibilities for reinvention. From its second issue, Aú Magazine is divided into sections with names linked to capoeira, a struggle invented by Afro-Brazilians in the slave quarters as resistance to oppression.
The Aruanda section  recalls and honors black personalities that are part of Brazilian history. The magazine also features the Roda section  composed of articles developed by the teachers of the Afro-Brazilian Studies and Socio-Education course, conducted annually by the NEAB-ND. The textual production of DEGASE employees comes in the section Trainel . Aú Magazine also presents Espaço Caxinguelê  with production of socio-educated students. We completed the edition with the Berimbau  sections, a transcribed article from a lecture given at the annual Meeting on Race Relations in Socioeducation, and Zum, zum, zum  review of a book by a black author or author.
