BRAZIL'S NATURAL HAIR EMPOWERMENT MARCH FOR BLACK WOMEN


Feeling Rebloggy
"Brazil is a country with the largest black population outside of the African continent. However it has often been the subject of dialogue regarding the strenuous challenges many of it’s black citizens face on a daily basis.

Now the Afro-Brazilian community has decided to embark upon change with their first ever Natural Hair Empowerment March also known as “Marcha do Empoderamento Crespo."



“Women suffer from both sides. Racism and sexism. Therefore, we use the concept of empowerment. From the aesthetics, the woman empowers and empowers the community” [translated]

Black Feminists Rock Worldwide 

 

Another organizer, Naira Gomes also chimed in: 
“So good to say, aesthetic for us is political. The hair is a symbol, a pretext to fight against racism.” [translated]
