Organized around eight ethnographic vignettes, the book looks at race and Ecuadorian popular culture- Afro-Ecuadorian cultural politics, cultural traditions, and political activism- mestizaje and the non-inclusion of blackness in official imaginations of national identity (the ideological biology of national identity)- race, gender relations, and anti-black racism- stereotypes of black female hypersexuality and sexual self-constructions- blackness and beauty contest politics- the passage from monocultural mestizaje to multiculturalism in the 1990s, which got a second life following the revolucion ciudadana (citizen revolution) and the election of Rafael Correa to the Ecuadorian presidency in late 2006- and blackness, racism, sports, and national pride in multicultural Ecuador.
