Babacu coconut Brazil_09rf00089.jpg
Black women break babacu coconuts for making oil at Quilombo Agrovila Maruda. A quilombo is a Brazilian hinterland settlement founded by people of African origin. Most of the inhabitants of quilombos were escaped former slaves and, in some cases, a minority of marginalised non-slave Brazilians that faced oppression during colonization.
