SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL – A group from the Brazilian Black Movement stormed the Fundação Palmares (Palmares Foundation) building in Brasilia on Friday protesting against the appointment of Sérgio Nacimento de Camargo as the institution’s new president. The entity is responsible for promoting the African matrix culture in Brazil.
"How are we going to accept, as a black social movement, that the president of an entity that is required to register the more than 5,000 quilombos (communities made up of ancestors of African slaves) we have today in Brazil, denies the history of slavery?" questioned Waldicéia . . .
