Walking Tour: Carioca Culture, Samba & Little Africa
A walk telling the Little-Known Story of Little Africa on the Rio de Janeiro Port Zone. Little Africa is the historic home of the Afro-Brazilian community in the Rio de Janeiro Port Region. The region became known as Little Africa after the slave trade became illegal in Brazil in 1831 (though abolition of slavery only happened 50 years later). An area little explored but extremely important in Rio's culture.
