The anthology is an initiative of the Raízes (roots) project and aims to create stronger ties between Brazil and African countries, through art.

The Angolan writer participates with 10 poems in the book entitled "Negras de lá, Negras daqui" (Black women from there and black women from here), which includes eight writers, four African (Angola, Mozambique and Cameroon) and four Afro-Brazilian women.

The project was created by Isidro Chiculo Sanene and Ermildo Saraiva Panzo who have joined efforts to ensure that the relationship between Brazil, the country in which they reside, and African countries is increasingly better in the transmission of cultural values, in honour of the Africa/Brazil cultural ties, as well as to contributed to the promotion of a culture that unites the African and Afro-Brazilian diaspora.

The Raízes Project is a group formed by young artists, academics and African activists residing in Brazil.

Its main objective is the promotion and elevation of African culture in Brazil, using the support of the law to encourage culture.
