Samba in Brazil,

This topic could include one or more arguments on an aspect of Brazil’s history and culture, as it relates to the establishment and growth of Afro-Brazilian dances. I would like it to stay away from just a simple history overview of samba in Brazil, but rather a little more specific of a direction – it can go in any direction. Marks will be given out in accordance with a well-formed essay. Attention should be paid to your thesis statement/ opening argument/hypothesis. The paragraphs following the opening statement should be supportive to the thesis and flow progressively. The conclusion should re-confirm the thesis statement and also further the initial argument in some way. Please include a bibliography with 2-3 of your own sources in addition to the sources provided here.
