The misrepresentation of Black men and women in mainstream media affects our lives down to the most minute interactions. We created You Had Me at Black to reclaim the narrative and highlight parts of the black experience that aren't typically shown in the media- the innocent, carefree, heartbreaking, painful, victorious moments that make up our lives.
Stories educate, uplift, encourage, humor, frighten, humble, and connect us. They're how we've transferred history and information for thousands of years. By revealing shared experiences and celebrating differences, You Had Me at Black uses our podcast and events to build community and encourage fans to walk boldly in their own.
