What #MariellePresente Means to Brazilian Music

Mar 16, 2018

3:30pm – 4:30pm CT

On March 14, 2018, Rio de Janeiro’s City Council member Marielle Franco was shot five times in the head and killed as she was driving home from work. All signs point to a political execution. A powerful voice for change in a turbulent era in Brazilian politics, the black lesbian lawmaker had been an inspiration to creative community and strongly critical of the military presence in Rio’s favelas. In response to the murder, Brazilian musicians, artists and writers are coming together to harness their art and creativity to defend Brazil’s threatened democracy.
