A young man on a journey to rediscover his hope, power and joy in a time of mindless self-dismemberment and an assimilation of discriminatory information. Exploring the idea that black Americans hold more than a gross classification that has been dictated upon their bodies by an unjust society, in which misinformation continues to divide and repress black joy without a chance.
This piece follows the historic threads of our collective ‘‘garment of destiny’‘ and witnesses the reclamation of ‘‘Little Black Boy Joy’‘. By exploring of the correlation between the History of the Production of Cotton and the slave trade industry (ex: Colorism, Capitalism, Comfort), we may consciously weave a future worthy of childhood dreams.
