Black Women of Brazil

The site dedicated to Brazilian women of African descent

Glória Maria

A long-time, well-respected journalist, she is the closest thing to Oprah that Brazil has ever produced (in regards to black women). She was the first black female journalist to ever work for Brazil’s top TV network, Rede Globo, the first black host of the popular news journal, Fantástico, and also has the distinction of being the only Brazilian journalist to ever interview Michael Jackson. Maria accompanied Jackson in 1996 during the recording of his video for the song, “Thy Don’t Care About Us” which was recorded in the Brazilian cities of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador. See the video here: (video in Portuguese with text below video in English).
