Stratford: Stratfest@Home offers a new panel discussion “Black Joy!!”

Monday, April 26, 2021

In light of recent events, we recognize how crucial it is to share Joy and amplify Black voices. BLACK JOY is a complex, individual, communal, healing and powerful form of resistance and resilience. 

Watch company members Ijeoma Emesowum, David Collins, Starr Domingue, Monice Peter and E.B. Smith reflect, share, commiserate and celebrate BLACK JOY. 

Spanning from the mundane to the extraordinary, this inspiring and compelling conversation decentralizes narratives of Black helplessness and despair to shine a celebratory light on Blackness as a source of celebration and joyousness. This panel was recorded in February of 2021.
