The Wider Image: Black Brazilians in remote 'quilombo' hamlets stand up to be counted
Helio dos Santos (L), 30, and Uine Lopes, 26, pull a fishing net into a boat, near Ilha de Mare, Salvador, Bahia State, Brazil August 23, 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.
