Portrait of senior black man at Agrovila Maruda, a Quilombo in Alcantara, Maranhao State, Northeastern Brazil. 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.
