27 min video w/subtitles
The history of the struggles, resistance and contributions of black women in Brazilian society is an untold chapter in the history of the country. Although often relegated to the kitchen in the imaginations of millions of Brazilians for centuries, their stories go much further than that.
Excluded from most history books are the black women who struggled against the brutality of slavery, independent vendors/businesswomen, politicians, writers, union activists, religious leaders, musicians, organizers and much more. The exhibition below is just one of the many ways that this untold and hidden history of black Brazilian women is being recovered and given its proper place in the annals of Brazilian History.

Gracious Queen I hope you do come back to destee...I see last time you were online here was 6 years ago on my birthday...I was probably probably taking a puff on that good 'ol stuff at the time...maybe sitting back sipping Coffee, Tea, or Wine...I just had to go back and read your previous posts.
Moved back to the Borough of my birth...Queens New York...Originally from SouthSide but now I live in Far Rockaway.
