A survey conducted by the São Paulo Teachers’ Union about violence in the state public school system is the Story of the Week on this episode of What’s Happening in Brazil, Brasil de Fato’s weekly show for English-speaking audiences in the African continent.

We also report on the Oscar nomination of the Brazilian feature The Edge of Democracy for best documentary, and the increasing number of illegal pesticides traded in the country.

On this week’s Culture Talk, we spoke with Naruna Costa, an actress, stage director, singer, and star of Netflix’s series Brotherhood. She spoke about the representation of black people in art and entertainment, and about her career coming from the outskirts.

And in the Brazilianism segment, a cook will show you what goes in one of Brazil’s most popular dishes: feijoada.

All What's Happening in Brazil episodes are available at Brasil de Fato's YouTube channel, where you'll also find a special English-content playlist.
