In the 1920s, Josephine Backer, the actress, singer, dancer, activist, made history, broke barriers and united very different worlds. Her success in Paris drove black people and their art from the ghettos to the main stages. Jazz invaded the aristocratic salons of Europe and the USA. In Brazil, Samba emerged. Popular and erudite culture met. This essay celebrates a century of that encounter. Erika Januza, actress and queen of Samba in Brazil, rescues the spirit of the Black Venus for the 2020s. Saravá is an african salute that means save, live, heal. Cultures that mix. Avant Garde Saravá!
