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, rests at CASOC (Academic Center of Social Sciences) at his university in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, April 16, 2021. In 2017, Luther got a full scholarship to the social sciences program at the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio (PUC-Rio), a private school that has minted central bank presidents and movie stars. "Because there are so few Black people at this renowned university, many view Black folks as servers, not as fellow classmates," Luther said, recalling awkward run-ins on campus. In one case, a woman mistook Luther for an elevator operator. In another, someone tried to pay him for a cup of coffee, confusing him with cafeteria staff. "It hurts, in a way, because you get the impression that you don't belong there," he reflected. REUTERS/Pilar Olivares SEARCH "BLM OLIVARES" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES
