Afro Brazilians: Time for Recognition
November 20 is celebrated, chiefly in Brazil, as a day of Afro-Brazilian consciousness.
The day has special meaning for those Brazilians of African descent who honor Zumbi as a hero, freedom fighter, and symbol of freedom. Zumbi has become a hero of the twentieth-century Afro-Brazilian political movement, as well as a national hero in Brazil.
