Deolinda Rodrigues was an Angolan nationalist, militant, writer, and translator, who also taught, wrote poetry, and worked as a radio host. Born into a Methodist family, she received a scholarship to study in Brazil, from where she corresponded with Martin Luther King Jr. Fearing extradition, she continued her education in the United States before returning to Angola. Rodríguez was a member of the People's Movement for the Liberation of Angola and co-founded its women's wing, the Organização da Mulher de Angola . She was captured, tortured, and executed by a rival nationalist group in 1967. A documentary of her life was released in 2014.Source: Wikipedia
