Exploring the rich context of what it means to be a black Brazilian, each piece transforms the cruel day-to-day realities, through the prism of fiction, into stories of hope for a different future. Instruments of political and social change, these narratives invite readers to explore and analyze a lesser-known aspect of the African diaspora and come to understand the universality and specificity of contemporary Brazilian literature by African women.
