The Black Joy Project aims to make an unprecedented celebration of Black JOY visible in our communities and museum spaces. The project celebrates the beauty, joy, and resilience of Black women and girls and their lived experiences during COVID-19 and the social unrest after the brutal deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others. Throughout 2024, public events will carry the project’s themes into performances, workshops, talks, and other programs with an exciting variety of artists and experts. The project will grow and build joy throughout the year. We invite you to the launch of the project with a celebratory reception of performance, food, activities, and fellowship.

Curated by Dr. Ruby Mendenhall and Florence Adibu. 

This program is partially sponsored by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency.
