In this Sept. 15, 2012 photo, an image of slave Anastacia, a figure venerated by many as a saint in Brazil, decorates a public space in the Quilombo Sacopa in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Quilombos are communities founded by escaped slaves or their descendents, and in Sacopa, the community is trying to save the grouping of brick houses and shacks nestled in the lush foilage of Brazil’s coastal rainforest where families have made their home for more than century but never legally owned.
