Marking the centenary of Querino's death

The day before the anniversary of Manuel Querino's death, Bérose, the International Encyclopaedia of the Histories of Anthropology, published an article on Querino's pioneering work as an ethnologist by Sabrina Gledhill.

In Bahia, a special mass was held in his memory on 14th February. Sung at the church of Nossa Senhora do Rosário dos Homens Pretos, where he was buried in the sacristy, the ceremony was organized by Jaime Nascimento.

Manuel Querino, who was, among many other things, the director of an African-inspired Carnival group, Pándegos d'África, died of malaria on Ash Wednesday, 1923.
