Brazil Makes Africa Pledge, Approves Affirmative Action 

Brazil announced plans to make major investments and transfers of technology to countries in Africa in efforts to repay a “solidarity debt” the South American nation says it shares with the continent due to its legacy of slavery. The country also ruled to maintain a sweeping federal affirmative action program that provides college scholarships to hundreds of thousands of Black and mixed-race students.
