As already in Rio de Janeiro, the exhibition is presented under the title "A Carta da Jamaica" (Letter from Jamaica). It refers to the famous letter written by Simón Bolívar (1793 - 1830) in 1815 during his exile in Jamaica, as a response to Henry Cullen, a British resident on the island. This letter, written in English, is considered one of the most important political statements in the history of Latin America.
