Multiple generations of black women share why they love being black — a love that embraces their bodies, family, culture, history and all the beauty of our colorful humanity.
People of color are more often asked about how they experience racism rather than the joy of being black. While racism persists and must continue to be dismantled — both personally and systemically – we celebrate the pride and beauty in being black. As you will hear in the video above, such love encompasses many aspects of identity and transcends to the very core of our shared humanity.

- Appreciate and celebrate black beauty.
