1930 Brazilian Revolution
The 1930 Brazilian Revolution video examines the end of Brazil’s first republic and “coffee-with-milk” politics. The video addresses the unexpected rise to power of Rio Grande do Sul’s Getúlio Vargas, which effectively ended coffee-producing São Paulo and dairy-producing Minas Gerais’ stranglehold on national politics. This short video can be used in an undergraduate survey, and also in IB History of the Americas or IB 20thc History classes. It may also serve as a helpful recap for a unit on the rise of authoritarianism in Brazil.
