The projeto Querino (Querino project) shows how History explains Brazil today. A story you may not have heard, read, or seen.

An Afro-centered look that puts in their rightful places, for Brazil’s formation, both the Afro-Brazilian contribution and the unbridled greed of the enslavers. Brazil was the country that imported the highest number of enslaved Africans in the world, and was also the last in the Americas to end bondage.

Conducted by a majority Black crew, projeto Querino was created and is coordinated by journalist Tiago Rogero; has support from Ibirapitanga Institute; History consultancy by Ynaê Lopes dos Santos and narrative consultancy by Paula Scarpin and Flora Thomson-DeVeaux, from Rádio Novelo. The podcast was produced by Rádio Novelo and the articles by “piauí” magazine.

Inspired by “The 1619 project” (launched in 2019 by “The New York Times” and led by journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones), projeto Querino began in 2020 with 12 months of thorough research, carried out by historians and journalists, on documents, bibliography, audio, and images. From this research, dozens of interviews were conducted and resulted in the publications (podcast and articles, in Portuguese) launched in August 2022 and which represent the starting point of the project.
