Black Conscience National Day

.Black Conscience National Day

Salve Zumbi!

Brazilans in all the country were celebrating today their roots and history.
The day has special meaning for Afro-Brazilians, who honor Zumbi as a hero,
freedom fighter and a symbol of freedom. Only at São Paulo city, about 12.000 people were protesting against racism and marching to celebrate this day.

This image was made in the Release Day Celebration, at Contagem, Minas Gerais state. It's a piece of a work in progress I'm developing about a strong black community that keep their traditions alive since the days of slavery.
