Dismantling Racism with Youth

Black Joy and Agency, Almeda Wright and Nyle Fort – Video and Discussion Outline

Dr. Almeda Wright and Nyle Fort explore the relationship between black joy and agency.

Questions for all Youth Groups:

  1. How can activism and protesting be rooted in joy? How can we foster this with our youth who want to take these next steps?
  2. How is joy and levity not just an aside in this work, but actually deeply necessary? How do we see this in our youth already?
  3. How is this kind of activism actually deeply creative kingdom work?
