|At Parenting for Liberation, we believe that to truly manifest the dreams cast in the past, we must celebrate Black Futures—Black children. We launched our Black Futures campaign with a photoshoot in January inviting Black families to share what liberation looks, feels, smells like and how they embody liberation in their family. The photoshoot centered joy and play. Families played ball, blew bubbles, played with dolls, read books, sang on a karaoke mic, etc. The photoshoot disrupts many narratives around Black families and creates new possibilities for what liberation looks like. |
That is what liberation looks like—Black families playing together, enjoying one another’s presence—this is what our ancestors fought for—our ability to be free.
