Every year on the 20th of November, Brazil marks Black Awareness Day to reflect on the history of Black people in Brazil. I joined Afro-Id UK for a special event to mark the day, which coincides with the death of Zumbi dos Palmares, a pioneering anti-slavery fighter whose story reminds us of the interconnectedness of racial, social end environmental justice. It was great to find out more about Brazil’s rich history of resistance to slavery in particular and support their mission promoting anti-racist education and recovering occluded histories.
