The Wider Image: Black Brazilians in remote 'quilombo' hamlets stand up to be counted
Marizelha Carlos Lopes, 52, who is a local fisherwoman and environmental activist, poses for a photo at Quilombo Bananeiras, Ilha de Mare, Salvador, Bahia State, Brazil August 22, 2022. Lopes' life, like that of many women living on Ilha da Mare, centers around the sea: she collects shellfish at dawn, shucks clams, and cracks crabs for meat that she feeds her family. "Being part of the census is a strategy for us, a strategy for resistance and change," she said. "One of our objectives is to escape an intentional invisibility."
