REVOLT: Black Joy Still Exists, It Always Will, was a virtual exhibition born during the pandemic which showcased Black Joy, Black Love and Black Excellence. Since then we've had an in-person exhibition titled Black Joy Is My Protest which featured 12 artists from across the country and was showcased at Busboys and Poets in Baltimore.
The products on this page, exemplify the intent of those exhibitions and build on what it means to celebrate Black Joy.
