The Wider Image: Scholar by day, street-sweeper by night, one Black man navigates Rio's racial divide... 
Felipe Luther, 37, a scholarship student at Pontifical Catholic University of Rio (PUC-Rio) who also works as a street-sweeper, studies on his laptop during the electricity cut at the student residence where he temporarily lives in Niteroi, Brazil, February 4, 2021. Brazil's educational inequalities have only grown during the pandemic, as remote classes force students to rely on resources at home, widening a gap between the haves and the have-nots. For months, Luther was reading at night by candlelight in Niteroi, across the bay from campus, where his student residence often lacked power. He charged his phone and laptop at work and used them to study until his street-sweeping shift from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. "For my course, which demands a lot of reading, I need a better computer than the one I got. But some people aren't even given a computer" Luther said, noting the array of challenges for disadvantaged students forced to study from home. "Not all phones are good enough for working, and not everyone has a phone ... or enough internet data to download their readings." REUTERS/Pilar Olivares SEARCH "BLM OLIVARES" FOR THIS STORY.
