What does black joy look like to you?
My Black Joy looks like being myself in an unapologetic way. For most of my life I’ve felt judged for being who I am, whether it was at school or with other people I know. Looking back, I see an undercurrent of racism and sexism in those interactions. As an adult, I have much more power to prioritize my agency, healing and happiness. I am an artist and that gives me new opportunities & skills for self expression every day. Creating brings me all those things and more - it makes me feel alive and embodied. Connecting to other Black and mixed people also feels true joy. It's amazing to get to know people and grow together, both as individuals and as a community.
