SOUZA, Edmacy Quirina de  e  PEREIRA, Reginaldo Santos. Childhood and ethnic-racial relations: a matter of know-power. Rev. Elet. Educ. [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.2, pp.459-472.  Epub 01-Jan-2020. ISSN 1982-7199.

This article proposes a discussion about childhood, racism and their connection with the devices of know-power engendered in social relations and educational spaces. It discusses how the educational spaces produce manners of subjectivation of the children, the several ways of governing them and molding them into the norms and standards of the white culture. The prejudice and racism practices learned and internalized in the school context contribute to the constitution of a child growing under the aegis of a racist culture. From the post-structuralist theoretical framework, the study problematizes the concepts of essentialized childhood, brings to debate and reflection the truth regimes, the games of knowledge and power that surround childhood, as well as the speeches that are produced in the educational sphere and the emerging challenges to develop an anti-racist education.
