Marielle Presente!

This mosaic portrait of Marielle Franco is a new addition to the public artwork that defines the Salt Stone as a place of resistance for Rio's African and Afro-Brazilian community. Marielle Franco, born and raised in a Rio de Janeiro favela community, was the first Black Lesbian to be elected to the City Council. She was brutally assassinated in March, 2018 and as of this writing, ten months later, there have been no named suspects nor arrests for her murder.
