The Lei Áurea, or Golden Law, which abolished Black slavery in Brazil, was adopted on May 13, 1888. It marked the last of a series of laws enacted in the second half of the nineteenth century which gradually did away with slavery in the country. Brazil, which received the largest number of enslaved Africans during the time of the transatlantic slave trade and is now home to the largest Black population outside of Africa, was the last nation to outlaw slavery in the American continent. The law itself was signed by the Imperial Princess Isabel, daughter of Emperor Pedro II. The short-lived Empire of Brazil would come to an end the following year with the ouster of the Emperor in 1889 and the eventual establishment of a republican government in the country.

Brazilian aviation expert Anesia Pinheiro Machado photographed with Pan American Airways senior instructor Donald Dionne, 1940.
Anesia was the second woman to earn a Brazilian pilot’s license and the first woman to earn a US commercial pilot’s license with additional ratings as an instructor and for flying on instruments only.
In September 1922, Anesia flew across Brazil to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Brazil’s independence from Portugal. This four day flight made her the first woman to fly across Brazil. When she landed in Rio, Brazilian aviation pioneer Santos Dumont gave Anesia a replica of the medal he received from Isabel de Bragança. That medal became Anesia’s good luck charm and she was never without it.
In 1951, Anesia toured the Americas, greeting world leaders from North, Central, and South America. She considered this the most satisfying experience of her life.
Brazil’s first female pilot to transport passengers, Anesia had a long career as both a commercial pilot and an instructor for the Brazilian Air Force.

My history crushes are Lampião and Maria Bonita, the brazilian version of “Bonnie and Clyde”. Lampião (Virgulino Ferreira da Silva), was a cangaceiro, and was born in August, 1900, at Pernambuco, Brazil. He was very poor, and when he was 19, his father was murdered by the police, and he swore revenge. For 19 years, Lampião and his group of cangaceiros traveled through the brazilian northeast coutryside, heavily armed, fighting against the goverment. In 1930, he met Maria Gomes de Oliveira, a.k.a. Maria Bonita, and they got married. The couple had a daughter, Expedita, whom by the law of Cangaço, couldn’t be raised with her family, and had to be given away.
Maria Bonita and Lampião were killed at July 28th, 1938, when the police surprised them and the cangaceiros at their hidding place, at Grota dos Angicos (Sergipe). She was beheaded alive, while Lampião was shot dead, and then beheaded.
They became legends at the northeast of Brazil, and inspite of her alias, Maria Bonita (that means “Beautiful Mary”), people said she was really ugly. Ugly or not, she made one of the most powerful man at the time fell in love for her and became the first female cangaceira ever.
My submission was accepted. Awesome.
That’s the story of this penis:
In Belo Horizonte we had a terrible mayor, called Marcio Lacerda. This year he tried to reelect himself (and was successful, unfortunately), and during his campaign he hired some artists to paint a wall on a famous neighborhood here. On the following day, this huge graffiti dick written FODASE (fuck it) was painted over it. This was the greatest artistic event I’ve ever seen in my city.
That’s why I live in Brazil.
