Black Joy: A Healthy Conversation About Race
While watching a Black Lives Matter protest on the news, Joy notices that her parents are wearing the same t-shirts as the protesters. She looks at her father and asks, "Daddy, why are we Black when our skin is brown?" This question sparks a family conversation where Joy's father explains the origins of race, as the family is transported into the protest march, and they walk through their community looking at the murals that they pass.
Black Joy: A Healthy Conversation About Race directly addresses the concept of race, explaining the origin of race, the social rationale for creating race and for the redefinition of Blackness from being an indicator of oppression to being an indicator of strength and resilience.
