Woman is the first quilombola with a masters degree in Law in the country

Vercilene Francisco Dias is a master in pioneerism.  The lawyer became the first quilombola woman with a masters degree in Law in the country.  In her thesis at the Federal University of Goiás, she analyzed the land regularization of the Kalunga Quilombo, the largest in the country.  Although she was happy with her achievement, Vercilene resents its uniqueness:  “we were supposed to be many”.  In 2016, she was already the first in her state to be approved in Brazil’s Bar Association.
