Black Joy! Call for Arts, Poetry & Performances: Submissions Deadline

Black History Month

Black History Month: Call for Art Poster Black History Month: Call for Art Poster
Black History Month: Call for Art Poster
The theme for this year's Black History Month is: BLACK JOY! For the students of the Black History Month planning committee, Black Joy means "focusing on the successes and accomplishments of Black people of all backgrounds. Despite the hardships we’ve faced and still are facing we continue to rise. We are leaders, scientists, doctors, innovators, entertainers, and so much more. Black Joy is capturing the wins of our people and celebrating them despite us living in a world where it is not expected of us to do amazing things. Black Joy is beating the odds continuously in a world that was in theory not made for us. We celebrate Black Joy because nobody has us like we have each other therefore we must rise and show the world what we can do. Black Joy shows that as Black people, despite the trauma our people have experienced, we are proud to be who we are. No matter where we come from or what we identify as we are one and we are happy to be Black."

Details on Call to Art:
