November 20 - Brazil celebrates Black Awareness Day
The day is marked on the anniversary of the death of Zumbi dos Palmares (1655–1695), the last leader of the Quilombo dos Palmares. The Day of the Black Awareness. The date was first observed in the 1960s and has been on the school calendar since 2003.
