Chapter 6 looks at the period from 1945 to 1954 and argues that these years were central in consolidating the notion that “Bahia” was synonymous with African-Bahian culture. The consolidation process during this period takes on the contours of a regional identity project in which the actors, social groups, institutions, and ideas that first emerged in the mid-1930s come together and influence one another.
