Conceição Evaristo as she is known in the literary world is an Afro-Brazilian author who has published widely both in Brazil and abroad. Her works range from poetry to essays. Born in 1946 in a favela in Belo Horizonte, the author is nowadays one of the most prominent names in the Afro-Brazilian literary world. Depicting the ‘escrevivência’ as she names it, that is, writing the experience of the marginalised and oppressed, Conceição Evaristo has captivated readers with her deceptively simple character and stories.
