Black models protest the fashion shows in Rio//Modelos negros protesto da moda mostra no Rio

Protesters gathered outside of the fashion shows in Rio recently, charging organizers with the same claim that the fashion industry worldwide has been accused of: poor representation of Blacks in the industry for years.  The protestors, women and men comprised mostly of the group Educafro (Educação para Afrodescendentes e Carentes), demonstrated bare-chested, and with tribal paintings calling organizers to include at least 10% of Black models on every Brazilian catwalk.
