This week, in What’s Happening in Brazil, we take a look into how an innovative initiative is changing the lives of one of the foundations of Brazilian society, the black woman. Through financial education, black women from all over the country are empowering themselves, and reconnecting with their roots.

In our Culture Talk segment, see how an artist is paying respect to the victims of the horrific corporate crime that occurred in Brumadinho, Minas Gerais, just over a year ago. Though many were lost, they are not forgotten.

Check out our News Update to get informed on the latest coming out of Brazil. This time we take a look at the coronavirus pandemic and those who instead of helping, are making the situation worse.

Finally, as is tradition on the show, learn some flavors from Brazil, and listen to some local tunes.

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.
