The event was confirmed Tuesday at press conference by the Brazilian ambassador to Angola, Paulino Franco de Carvalho Neto.

The diplomat underlined that the exhibition is based on a comic book work by the cartoonist and Brazilian professor, Marcelo D'Salete.

The exhibition is part of the most relevant prize in Brazil "Jabuti 2018", in the  "comics" category, won by the cartoonist.

"Angola Janga" or "Little Angola" is a symbol of “Quilombo dos Palmares”, the main focus of resistance to slavery in colonial Brazil, created late 16th century in Pernambuco, Brazil.

Over 100 years, Quilombo dos Palmares became a "real African kingdom in Brazilian lands". The date of the death of Zumbi dos Palmares (20 November) became the "National Day of Black Consciousness".

The initiative is intended to inspire interest in reading and promote literature in Portuguese language.
