Abstract in Portuguese
Analiso a trajetória do militar, professor e empresário negro Sydnei Lima Santos (1925-­2001), o Coronel Sydnei. Nascido no Rio de Janeiro e de origem modesta, tornou-­ se oficial do Exército, mudou-­se para Curitiba ainda no início da carreira e ali construiu uma grande instituição de ensino superior, a Universidade Tuiuti do Paraná. Investigo como essa história excepcional foi moldada por condicionantes de classe social e de raça ao longo de dois movimentos distintos no espaço social: o movimento de ascensão e a conquista de uma posição de classe dominante. Desde uma perspectiva mais subjetiva, examino ainda a atitude que o Coronel desenvolveu frente à questão racial em correspondência com a ideologia dominante na sua época: a democracia racial.

Trajectory
Abstract in English
I analyze the trajectory of the military, professor and businessman Sydnei Lima Santos (1925-­2001), also known as Coronel Sydnei. Born in a humble family in the city of Rio de Janeiro, he became an army officer, moved to the city of Curitiba still in the beginning of his career, and ended up building an important private higher education institution, Universidade Tuiuti do Paraná. I investigate how this exceptional history was shaped by class and race conditionings along two distinct displacements in the social space: a movement of social ascension and the achievement of a dominant class position. From a more subjective standpoint, I still examine the attitude developed by the Coronel towards the racial problem in correspondence to the dominant ideology of his time: the racial democracy.
