Write It! - Day 16 | Rita a 19th Century Afro Brazilian

Day 16  of the Black History Month Write It! Series *Photo of the Day*



This portrait of Rita, a 19th century Afro-Brazilian opens to door to so many period film and series opportunities. Research shows that Rita may have been a free woman of color. I would love to watch a period film with an Afro-Brazilian protagonist, set in 19th century Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
