PHOTOS: African-Brazilians march for curly, natural hair

Hundreds of African-Brazilian men, women, young and old gathered in Salvador, Brazil on November 7 to march against injustices on Brazilian men and women of colour. They walked to affirm the “black aesthetic” and the fight for citizenship of black women and men in Brazil.
