Mixed Race Day

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mixed Race Day
Observed byBrazil
CelebrationsRacial equality, multiculturalism
DateJune 27

In Brazil, "Mixed Race Day" (Dia do Mestiço) is observed annually on June 27, three days after the Day of the Caboclo, in celebration of all mixed-race Brazilians, including the caboclos. The date is an official public holiday in three Brazilian states.

Mixed Race Day marks the election of twenty-seven mixed-race representatives during the 1st Conference for the Promotion of Racial Equality,[1] which occurred in the city of Manaus from April 7 to 9, 2005.

It also recognizes the month of June, in which caboclo activist Helda Castro was registered as the only mixed-race representative in the 1st National Conference for the Promotion of Racial Equality, which was held in Brasília (June 30 to July 2, 2005) and was sponsored by the Government of Brazil.

Manaus established "Mixed Race Day" as an official day of the city on January 6, 2006. The recognition was adopted by other cities and four States: 2006, by the Brazilian State of Amazonas and by the city of Boa Vista, in State of Roraima; 2007, by the State of Roraima and the State of Paraíba; 2016, by the State of Mato Grosso.
