MACEDO, João Paulo et al. Living conditions, access to policies and institutional racism in quilombola communities. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.1, pp. 1-28. ISSN 1983-8220.

We start from the problematizations around the institutional racism in which the quilombola communities live in Brazil. To this end, we aim with this study: a) to identify the profile of the population, the living conditions and access to public policies; and b) to map the lines of force that make up the subjectivities and their stories of struggle. The research was conducted in a quilombola community in the state of Rio Grande do Norte. The data were produced by applying an environmental sociodemographic questionnaire to the residents, accompanied by observation of the daily life of the community and semi-structured interview with the leaders. The results indicate the effects of institutional racism on the production of inequities and inequalities. Therefore, we understand institutional racism as a successful mechanism of biopolitics to produce subjectivities that paradoxically survive between capture and resistance to the purposes of intervention and social control by the structures of power and domain of the State.
