Note from BW of Brazil: It is truly an intriguing time in Brazil’s history. In a country that has historically taught its African descendants to have shame in their ancestry and deny their blackness, with access to college and information via the internet, more and more people are discovering a pride in defining themselves as negros and negras or Afro-Brasileiros and Afro-Brasileiras. And they’re not just taking advantage of this information for themselves; through blogs and video sharing sites such as You Tube, they are sharing their knowledge, experiences and development of their identity and transitions into accepting their natural hair. Below we share with you yet another such story, this time featuring blogger and vlogger Gabi Oliveira.
