What you'll do

During this online experience I will be able to share with you my knowledge acquired in 5 years about the Little Africa region located in the Port Zone of Rio de Janeiro.

The experience will be an online chat where we will talk about the African influence in Rio de Janeiro, the impacts of the African Diaspora and how we deal with racism and prejudice to this day.

It will be a moment of mutual exchange where each one of us will be able to share our experiences in our countries.

This is an online version of my "Get to know the Little Africa" experience that already has over 270 positive reviews.

This experience is great to do with your team and start a debate on structural racism in your company. Understanding history makes it possible for us to better understand the impacts of slavery on our society.

Before completing your reservation be aware of the language being offered the experience;)

I am Brazilian, I live in Rio de Janeiro and I have a tourism agency focused on Rio de Janeiro residents, I am also a tour guide and teacher. Almost a wonder woman, but in summary I am passionate about the world of tourism.

In 2018 I was invited to travel to San Francisco to talk about my experience at Airbnb headquarters.

I love to share knowledge and I want to share more about this side of the story that many people don't tell about.

Um tour muito interessante para conhecer personagens históricos e lugares icônicos da cultura afro-brasileira na cidade do Rio de Janeiro.

This is my second time attending this experience because I really love learning, and Gaby is a great story teller. I think everyone should learn the history of Little Africa, not just Brazilians, or people considering travel.

Genial! Precisamos ser audaciosos nessa busca do conhecimento; Daquilo que não nos contam... E essa experiência online favorece enxergar e ultrapassar questões que são desconhecidas pela História do Brasil em todo processo sistemático escolar. Fiquei e ainda estou processando o encantamento. Gratidão a Gaby por toda essa energia bacana em conduzir a temática. Supeeer indico! Garanto que você nunca viu algo antes.

This was such a fun and informative event! I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about Brazilian history. Gaby was engaging, funny, and friendly. She was professional and knew so much about Little Africa. Her passion and knowledge about the subject was palpable. We've already recommended this to several friends and family. Thanks, Gaby!
