    If you know some portuguese or want to 'try' to know more about it here's the website about their programming. Seems they are still building the foundations. Hip hop is included as a feature of their programming along with other commentaries and specials.

    Fantastic development! Hopefully this station will do more for Afro-Brazilians than BET has done for African Americans.

    I see the brother in a suit, that's a good sign already.

    Thanks for posting this thread dusty. As you know Brazil has the largest black population of any country outside of Nigeria. In fact many Brazilians have Yoruba ancestry.

    The new Television station serves as a quantum leap in terms of trying to raise the psyche of African Brazilians and giving them a measure of hope.

    I encourage all African Americans to visit Brazil. Many Brazilians have studied our history in this country and view it as an example of the struggle and liberation from the grip of White Supremacy and Oppression in the African Diaspora. We would do well to build bridges with our kith and kin there.
