This research aims to understand sociologically the meanings produced by black women, from their experiences as students in undergraduate courses at UFMS, in the period between 2013 and 2018. With this, we seek to interpret the multiple subjective and social effects of these experiences from the context of the implementation of national policies of affirmative action and Law 12.711, 2012. The law, which became known as the "Quotas Law", made it mandatory to adopt quotas with criteria of school origin (public school), race, and income in all federal universities and federal institutes of technical high school education in the country. With the approval of the "Quotas Law", the Brazilian State consolidated and unified what was already a reality in a large part of the public universities, which had been adopting some kind of affirmative action policy since the previous decade. In the case of the UFMS experience, our specific objectives are: a) To understand how black students build their individual and collective experiences of agency within the UFMS. b) To analyze how the UFMS has implemented actions for student access and permanence, within the scope of Law 12.711/2012, with emphasis on its reflections on black women quota holders. This qualitative and exploratory research was conducted through documentary and bibliographic research and interviews to capture the students’ living experiences. Our theoretical and methodological approach is based on the contributions of Postccolonial Studies, Cultural Studies, Black Feminist Epistemology, Cultural Studies and Black Feminist Epistemology.
