COSTA, Ana Flávia de Sales; EDMUNDO, Odair José Câmara  and  MOREIRA, Maria Ignez Costa. Affection and common: coping with racism for children and young people quilombolas in the school context. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.49, pp. 627-640. ISSN 2175-1390.

This article originated of doctoral research in progress in the postgraduate program in psychology at PUC-MINAS and aimed to understand the relationships between affection and the common for the expansion of the political power of children and young people in the quilombola community. Social-historical psychology was the theoretical referential adopted, through the categories of affection, common and political, with Vigotski, Espinosa and Sawaia as the main authors. The methodology was the psychosocial intervention research in which 65 conversation circles with children and young people between 7 and 18 years old were analysed. The school showed itself as a space in which racist practices are experienced by children and young quilombolas when they leave the community to study in the urban area, causing ethical-political suffering. This context, in addition to representing an environment of reproduction of social inequality, also shows itself as a possibility of coping through affectivity ande the constitution of the common.

Keywords : Psychology socio-historical; Quilombola community; Afetctivity and common.
