The Our Black Project

The Our Black Project is looking for submissions - video, text or pictures - that document your journey to self discovery and the love of your individual notion of Blackness.

The goal of Our Black is to build a collection of narratives(visual or words) that reflect the diverse experiences of Black folk, one which could be used to better understand the complexity, depth, and challenges of Being and living Black. We want to share your stories for others to learn from, grow from and most importantly, heal from. We want to hear all the different ways that Blackness overlaps and interplays with other aspects of your life and identity.

What are some experiences that have stayed with you living as a Black Woman in America? Or your experiences and struggle as a Black Man in America? What have you experienced as Black LGBT? Or with with your Multi-Racial Identity? Have you been ostracized or judged for never being Black Enough? Have you experiences differed as an African immigrant or 1st generation American from those of you African American peers?

We want to know all of this and more. We hope that you can share some of your life experiences so that others can relate and learn from. We accept pictures, writing and video narratives!
