#RealTalk Dialogue Series | Still We Rise: Designing Authentic Black Joy events 365 days of the year

Black Joy Parade is a hyper-positive, family-friendly turn up that celebrates the Black experience and the Black community’s contribution to cultures past, present, and future. If Black History Month were in need of a refreshed definition, The Black Joy Parade exemplifies its meaning.

Although this year’s events and activations will be different the JOY will be no less. Join the Black Joy Parade team to share their story from initial vision to execution and now the ultimate pivot that will set the bar for designing authentic Black Joy events 365 days of the year.


Black History in the Making

The Meeting Professional

Let us celebrate Black History Month with purpose, with commitment to acknowledge all that is good in our community, to right the wrongs and set ourselves on a path forward as a community. Let’s also strive to celebrate beyond the month of February.
