"If at first you don’t succeed try, try and try again."

In the wake of the trials and tribulations that have disproportionately affected the Black community over the last year, it might seem in vain to look for the light. But, as Black people have shown time and time again, their resilience and strength always shines through. After the brutal killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and countless others, artists rose up to give a voice to the voiceless by creating works of art that captured their emotions as well as the current climate. Now during Black History Month, some of those same artists have opened up and shared what inspires their joy.

In a world where people try to dim other's lights, these artists have found happiness in the most unexpected, sometimes mundane, and always beautiful parts of their lives. Whether their joy comes from celebrating the beauty and diversity amongst Black women or from sending prints to customers, these artists have proven that dimming their light is easier said than done. Commemorate Black History Month and the Black artists that have held on to their joy ahead.
