The Wider Image: Black Brazilians in remote 'quilombo' hamlets stand up to be counted
Uine Lopes, 26, shows a tattoo of his grandfather fishing on his left forearm, at Quilombo Bananeiras, Ilha de Mare, Salvador, Bahia State, Brazil August 18, 2022. Lopes said his younger generation of islanders are increasingly aware of the common cause they have with other minorities and marginalized communities in Brazil. “We need to be aware, to vote for as many Black people as possible who are committed to the fight, who have specific visions for Indigenous communities, quilombolas, fishermen, riverside residents and so many other communities that experience a lack of state support,” he said.
