Dona Carninha

 

Dona Carninha is the descendent of Dona Zézinha and Dona Rosária who were slaves of Coronel Paulinho. I met Dona Carninha while researching the reality of Quilombos (communities of descendants of slaves) in the Northeast of Brazil. Being able to trace her ancestry back to the first slaves Coronel Paulinho brought to Fazenda Varzinha dos Paulinhos, his vast estate in the hinterlands of Pernambuco state, Dona Carninha had a very painful and powerful story to tell. And despite her blindness, Dona Carninha had a very clear vision of the world around her.
