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 challenge the narrative and present parts of the black experience that aren't typically shown in the media- the innocent, funny, heartbreaking, victorious moments that make up our lives.
Storytelling is Ingrained in the Black Experience
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 storytelling to build community and encourage listeners to walk boldly in their own.
