Session 258: The Importance of Black Joy

View descriptionShare

The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.

Where in your body do you carry joy? Isn’t that a profoundly beautiful but maybe also difficult to answer question? But it’s an important one and one I want you to spend some time thinking about. To help us dig a little deeper into what Black joy is and why it’s important, this weel I’m joined by Tracey Michae'l Lewis-Giggets, the author of Black Joy: Stories of Resistance, Resilience, and Restoration. Tracey and I chatted about how to get in touch with joy, why joy can sometimes be hard to access, the importance of Black joy, particularly when things are difficult, and she shares a beautiful excerpt from her book.
