2016 has been the year of battling serious racial issues, but also the year of celebrating our culture and achievements.

We’re all familiar with the hashtag #BlackGirlMagic, which features beautiful black women and their accomplishments. We’re all for it because it shows our women in a positive light, especially during this turbulent time.


Since we live in a time where Black men are too frequently portrayed as “thugs,” we’re happy to say that our men can now follow suit! There’s a new hashtag #BlackBoyJoy, created by Chance The Rapper which features men of color showing off their happiness and carefree attitude.
