How do the people of African descent feel about the way they have been treated for all these years?

Hi. I have read that for the 500-year celebration there were plans to reenact the voyage that took place from Portugal to Brazil. Did this actually happen? Also, I read that the National Commission for the Discovery of Brazil made plans for a memorial of the first encounter in santa Cruz Cabralia county in the state of Bahia between the conquerors and the indigenous peoples of Brazil. The focus of the project was to provide better living conditions for the Pataxo' Indians that currently live on the land by designating the surrounding areas as federal reservations composed of residential villages, schools and a community center. Did this actually happen? Were serious efforts put out in respect to the indigenous peoples of Brazil? How much was done during the celebrations to celebrate the diversity of indigenous peoples in Brazil? I am very curious about this so I hope someone has an answer.
Thanks a lot...Liz
