Michael Jackson: The Legacy
Since August 2019
Marileia dos Santos, better known as Michael Jackson, is one of the great figures in the history of Brazilian women’s football. In the last part of a series of four, this virtual exhibition tells the end of the carioca’s career on the pitch and the legacy left for future generations.
After flying around the world, the player Michael Jackson returned to Brazil to live what would be the end of her career in women’s football alongside her mother and family. Marileia played for another 14 years, winning the Brazil’s Cup title and hanging up her boots in 2009, at an impressive 46 years old.
This virtual exhibition, held at Google Arts&Culture, features images of the player’s remarkable moments, both professionally and personally, to remember the last years of her brilliant trajectory, which left an unforgettable legacy.
