'joy is an act of resistance' Poet Toi Derricotte

'Black joy inspires us, keeps us uplifted through the toughest of times, and is radical in its simplicity to make us happy and confident in finding one’s collective voice. In Black joy we celebrate the Black experience, history, culture, and community cohesion, to share, listen and support others in our need to connect and be together.' Janet Browne


This event is in collaboration with the Black Gallery Visitor Network (UK).
