Black Women of Brazil


Note from BW of Brazil: These are the types of stories that I love to feature here at Black Women of Brazil! Over the years we’ve seen a number of horror stories involving African and Haitian immigrants in Brazil so it’s great to be able to post noteworthy accomplishments that show what immigrants, children of immigrants or Afro-Brazilians can achieve if given the opportunity, access to knowledge and the tools to succeed. Like Maria Augusta Arruda and Sonia Guimarães, Nadia Ayad is a black woman making moves in the world of science and I’m looking forward to hearing more about this dynamic young lady!
