The Book of Marielle Franco - A Photobiography

Marielle Franco

The book of Marielle Franco - A Photobiography is an essential document not only to understand the main current social issues in Brazil, but also the broad struggle for human rights, for the black population and for LGBTQIAP+ people. Marielle Franco (1979-2018) was one of the most important contemporary Brazilian politicians. Born in Complexo da Maré, a large favela community in Rio de Janeiro, she became a city councilor with a strong presence in debates on human rights and favela culture. She was brutally murdered in 2018, in a political crime that has yet to be solved. This book collects some 80 photos of her trajectory, from her childhood to the worldwide repercussion of her death, accompanied by fragments of texts, interviews and testimonies from her.
