Black Consciousness Day on 20 November 2021 is a preeminent day in Brazil, set aside to commemorate Zumbi’s death — the pioneering leader of resistance to slavery — and to reflect on the tragic injustices imposed on the Black community and African descendants since the beginning of time. This day is a social movement, dedicated to recognizing the worth and unmatched contributions of the Black people in the country, by honouring their existence, and protesting against racial discrimination on a massive scale. Black Consciousness Day is a public holiday in and around hundreds of cities in Brazil.
Black History Studies in association with SK Tours presents a virtual tour titled ‘Brazilian Black Rome – Black History of Bahia’ on Friday 26 November 2021.
On this tour we will discover the hidden history of the Brazilian state of Bahia, also known as “Black Rome.” Salvador, Bahia is a charming and important city, the first Capital of Brazil. Salvador is also the most African city in Brazil, therefore colourful, cultural and musical. UNESCO recognizes Salvador as a Creative Musical City and we do have some of the best musicians in the country. Good reasons to visit us?
The tour will cover key areas such as:
1. Slavery and First Capital of Brazil
2 The independence of Brazil in Bahia
3. Uprising of Afro-Brazilians during enslavement
4. Protective Society of the Underprivileged
5. Salvador and the Old Town (Pelourinho) today
