Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
The random article for Saturday, 19 December 2020 is Quilombola.
A quilombola (Portuguese pronunciation: [kilõˈbɔlɐ]) is an Afro-Brazilian resident of quilombo settlements first established by escaped slaves in Brazil.

Many quilombolas live in poverty.
