Black joy is an act of resistance that is necessary and integral in the journey to our collective freedom. This radical space will use portraits to blend the magic of Black life and social media to shine brightly through our joy. Participants will leave with a digital portrait featured in #TheBlackJoyProject series, as well as a growing creative community and space where we celebrate our full selves.
