The revolutionary power of Black joy
Miracle Jones • TEDxCMU
What exactly is Black joy? It's the "indescribable joy that comes from being able to live and thrive despite all the obstacles and barriers of living in anti-Blackness," says community organizer and queer activist Miracle Jones. "Part of it is a hope that things will soon get better and part of it is a celebration of still being here." And she explains why this sense of pride and hope is another crucial component of the racial justice movement.
