3 Djaimilia Pereira de Almeida
Also the new generation of writers, Djaimilia moved to Portugal as a child, a place she grew up and lives today. It debuted in 2015, with the book "Esse Cabelo", a book of memories, fiction and essay. It is also an anti-racist manifesto.
"A tragicomedy with curly hair that crosses borders", defines Evelyn Sacramento, the project Lendo Mulheres Negras. "In this book, which can be considered autobiographical, she tells the story of a girl who lives in Lisbon and her relationship with her hair over the years", she adds.
Djaimilia participated in the 15th edition of Flip (Paraty International Literary Festival), last year and was categorical: "I write so as not to waste my life. It would be a life without living, a life badly used. For me, writing is a matter of life or death"
