Black Joy, Freedom Dreams

Black Joy

"Black Joy is to embrace your full humanity, as the world tells you that you are disposable and that you do not matter.  Black joy is a celebration of taking back your identity as a person of color and signaling to the world that your darkness is what makes you strong and beautiful.  Black joy is finding your homeplace and creating homplaces for others.  Black joy is understanding and recognizing that as a dark person you come with grit and zest because you come from survivors who pushed their bodies and minds to the limits for you to one day thrive."
