Black Awareness Day

Illustration / Self Initiated
Project Overview
I had the pleasure to be in Brazil during the celebration of 2019s Black Awareness Day and made this illustration to honor the influence of African culture in the Caribbean and Latino countries.
Racism is still present in Latin America and I think it's sad how unaware we are for how much of our music, gastronomy and traditions are rooted in Africa. But luckily there are agents of change fighting prejudice and misconceptions.
