Black people. Green spaces.
New narratives. New faces.

I am tired of the typical deficit narrative that tends to surround Black people! So, I decided to write a new narrative – a narrative of JOY! To be specific…Black Joy.

“What is Black Joy?’

Black Joy is a Statement
Black Joy is a Stride
Black Joy is Permission
Black Joy is Pride
Black Joy is a form of Resistance
Black Joy is a form of Rest
Black Joy is anything you need it to be…
…because Black Joy is the Best

For this walking piece, Black people from Tallahassee, Florida will gather to walk around Governor’s Park and then pause to enjoy the setting of the sun. Our collective presence will move our message of “Black Joy in Green Spaces” forward.

Meet Chris Omni with other participants, on-line on Thursday 15 September – more details here.

Walking arts today became a response to the deep environmental global crisis we are facing today.

It is more and more clear that the future will be ecological or there will not be a future for our species. Walking our planet is the opportunity to explore this question.
