How has the pandemic impacted Rio de Janeiro's urban quilombos? What is the importance of these spaces in preserving memory? And as tools of resistance? Participate in this public class with quilombola leaders and understand how their territories are doing in the pandemic era. The urban quilombos of Rio de Janeiro make up an essential part of the city. They show us the importance of looking to the past in order to think about the future. They are carriers of history and wisdom, as well as locales of endurance and autonomy. Join us and hear from the leaders of five urban quilombos in Rio de Janeiro who value and defend their right to memory to create solutions for the future. In this memory, the connection between Africa and Brazil serves as the root for understanding the city.
