    Feminist, fat, queer blogger Jessica Hipolito reminding us all that the resistance of Black people is not new. It comes from a deep history that we must not forget and always be connected to our inherited power as we struggle for freedom. #BLM2BRA #BlackWomenLead

    3 days of international youth power, sharing, and growing is being held in the building built by Andre Rebouças, the first Black Brazilian architect. Even in a majority Black country, still our people have to fight to hold & build our own spaces. Learning more about the realities of anti-blackness. #wewillwin #BLM2BRA #vidasnegrasimportam

    Shout out to @linnanesh a powerful organizer and teacher in Bahia, Salvador. She's a leader in the Brazilian youth movement "Juntos" who we are building with this week at the Acampamento Internacional das Juventudes em Luta. She's taught us so much already about the work here and the culture of Black Brazil. #BLM2BRA #vidasnegrasimportam

    We have been learning about how everything is criminalized and targeted against poor Black youth in Brazil. Sharing so many similar stories to our experience in the US. While walking near the beach, we learned about how they are being systematically prohibited from going to the "nice" beaches via racial profiling on busses and facing charges for attempted beach days. Today's reflection is on we must also fight for #BlackJoy and build it into our practice of resilience. #BLM2BRA #Vidasnegrasimportam
