President of the Humanitas360 Institute receives the Afro-Brazilian Civic Merit Medal from Zumbi dos Palmares University

The president of the Humanitas360 Institute, Patrícia Villela Marino, received on May 13 the Afro-Brazilian Civic Merit Medal, which is awarded annually by the Zumbi dos Palmares University. The award, in 2022, is a reflection on the 134th anniversary of the signing of the Golden Law, which officially extinguished slavery in Brazil.

The Afro-Brazilian Civic Merit Medal recognizes personalities who have contributed to the empowerment and improvement of the socioeconomic, cultural and educational conditions of black Brazilians, valuing respect for difference, tolerance and equal opportunities.

«We return to talk about this topic because we have learned that freedom was given, but later we discovered that this freedom was a conquest that began with the first black who arrived in this country. The first act of this black was rebellion. The homeland that we still try to build today was started by the blacks in the quilombos”, said the rector José Vicente during the ceremony.

In her speech, the president of the Humanitas360 Institute, Patrícia Villela Marino, recalled the importance of reflecting on the prison population, especially the female prison population, which, reflecting the inequality of Brazilian society, is made up mostly of black and brown women. “One of the priorities of H360 is to work with this population, promoting the creation of social cooperatives, so that we can instill knowledge, entrepreneurial spirit and good business practices in these people at the most difficult time of their lives.”
