The first edition of black joy archive was created as an urgent call amidst the global racial reckoning of 2020. Two years later this project’s intention remains the same — to amplify stories, connect community and reject racialized pathologies that continue to flatten the varied experiences of Black livelihood.

The archive is intended to serve black people as a therapeutic practice in self-preservation and self-esteem, as we are continually asked to face painful imagery of folks who look like us. The goal is that this collective action can be an outlet for black individuals to heal through lifting our voices and giving space for our experiences to be seen, while also demystifying the notion that black lives can solely be viewed in a negative vacuum of struggle.

The second edition of this project includes two new book releases and a new website which launches June 17th, 2022.

About BJA:

This project began in May of twenty-twenty amidst a worldwide pandemic and the continued racial epidemic this country has battled for centuries. The archive is intended to serve black people as a therapeutic practice in self-preservation and self-esteem, as we are continually asked to face painful imagery of folks who look like us. The goal is that this collective action can be an outlet for black individuals to heal through lifting our voices and giving space for our experiences to be seen, while also demystifying the notion that black lives can solely be viewed in a negative vacuum of struggle.
