Considered one of the great voices of racial activism and black feminism of her generation, Luiza aims to boost the search for protagonism. Therefore, as he writes in the work, the importance of representativeness and belonging: “Only from the moment we guarantee the proportionality of spaces for the part of the Brazilian population that declares itself to be black, will we be able to reconstruct the social and historical narratives of our country . Representativeness matters. Belonging humanizes”.

“Caixa Preta” is a dialogue with the public

Luiza’s desire to resume the main texts of her column in Glamour, her personal and professional evolution in the post-pandemic context and Globo de Livros’ goal of connecting with a new crop of writers resulted in the publication of “Caixa Preta”.

With 232 pages and divided into five moments – be black, Be woman, be affection, Being Digital and be real -, the book proposes dialogue with the public through a simple and educational language, while articulating guidelines for the present and the future, while honoring and contextualizing the past.

“May our image connect us with our past, but may we see with courage not only the future, but also the present. May our greatest achievement for our active belonging be the freedom to be whoever we want in the places we invent”punctuates an excerpt from the work.
