A Tribute to Marielle Franco

On March 14th, 2019, exactly a year after her assassination, the Brazil LAB at Princeton organized a tribute to councilwoman and political activist Marielle Franco, with a keynote by Dr. Angela Davis. “Black Feminisms across the Americas” started off with the screening of the documentary I Will Not Be Interrupted, by Débora McDowell and Jamille Pinheiro Dias. The first panel was composed by Monica Benicio, Giovana Xavier and Tianna Paschel. The second panel was composed by Imani Perry, Carolyn Rouse and Aisha Beliso-De Jesús. The following day the symposium concluded with Monica Benicio, Fernanda Chaves and Mário Augusto Medeiros da Silva on a discussion moderated by Pedro Meira Monteiro, Marília Librandi and Jamille Pinheiro Dias.
