This paper discusses aspects of Nenê da Vila Matilde2 Samba School trajectory's, between 1954-1967, focusing on the themes chosen for their carnival performances with the intention of detecting possible critical drives in those choices. In this sense, the research examines whether the themes of their parades were focused only on the experiences of the group or if they also were connected with other social segments. Tracing it's profile in this creation period and consolidation of black community's carnival groups implies to place it in the larger group of the same kind, whose journey begins in 1937 with the Lavapés emerging, considered the first São Paulo's samba school. Although Nenê was created in 1949, the landmark of this image begins in 1954 as their marches express a default theme on their views. And it extends until 1967, one year before the institutionalization of carnival parades by São Paulo's government, investing public funds in their assembly and samba schools. The research relied on daily press, memoir writers (autobiography, photos, testimonies of those carnival leaders) and the relevant literature, trying to detect the traces of this School before that institutionalization.
