Pedro Rajāo believes education is a key weapon in the battle against racism and colorism. As such, he brings exhibits straight to the people in each of his ten murals immortalizing legendary Black personalities from his native Brazil. In the streets of Rio de Janeiro, you can find towering images of composers, activists, and babalorixás (priests/priestesses) of the Candomblé religion, originally of African origin. Each image serves to inspire new generations to take pride in Black consciousness and continue to fight the evil of racism.
