1st Black Brazilian Women Intellectuals International Conference: Quilombo as Global Black Solidarity in the Past, Present and Future: Carolina Maria de Jesus and Eliana Alves Cruz
II - Carolina Maria de Jesus and Eliana Alves Cruz: Black Women Narratives of the Past, Present, and Future.

Carolina Maria de Jesus was a prolific Black Brazilian writer and author of Quarto de Despejo (Child of the Dark), in which she narrates the lived experience of her family in the outskirts of São
Paulo in the 1960’s. Eliana Alves Cruz’ fictional work lays out historical perspectives of colonial Brazil that challenge the official version and introduces the reader to Black characters whose
existence is grounded on a vast ancestral knowledge, which proposes a particular epistemology for Black Brazilian literature. Black women as the author of History is the focus of this panel.
