African-Brazilians flaunt curly, natural hair in protest against discrimination

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.

About a week ago, hundreds of African-Brazilian men and women took to the streets, protesting against the injustices faced by people of African descent in their country.

In a beautiful show of solidarity, they also exhibited the diverse beauty of women of colour by showing their natural, curly hair.

They walked to affirm the “black aesthetic” and the fight for citizenship of black women and men in Brazil.

The march tagged the Marcha Do Empoderamento Crespo, saw an amazing turn out with Africans flaunting their beautiful God-given hair.

Photographer, Anna Bispo, captured the natural beauty of the individuals themselves and all of them together as a unit.

See lovely photos from the march in Pulse gallery.
