Yoruba is now an official language in Brazil and MUST be taught in schools!

I think this is pretty dope and will help the diaspora connect more…

While all sorts of crazy is happening with the new Brazilian head of state the government itself has still managed to push through a progressive new policy that we sincerely welcome.

It has introduced the compulsory study of African History and Yoruba Language into the primary and secondary schools curriculum.

The West African language Yoruba is spoken by around 30 million Africans and with Brazil’s HUGE population this could be a massive boost to the language and culture.
