MVL Conversations: A Talk About Joy & Legacy with EbonyJanice

February 17, 2021

I recently sat down for a lively conversation with my sister and friend HipHop Womanist EbonyJanice for her A Year in Black Joy conversation series. We talked about joy and legacy ... about the mission that our grandparents sent us out on in life and the personal legacy work we are doing daily.

EbonyJanice Moore is a womanist scholar, author, and activist doing community-organizing work, most specifically around black women’s body ownership as a justice issue, black women’s access to ease, joy, and play, and Hip Hop as a tool for sociopolitical and spiritual/religious movement making. She has created curriculum for leadership development for high school-aged girls in Kenya and South Africa, developed programming for teenagers in housing projects in Decatur, Georgia giving them exposure to culture, STEM programs, and the arts, and she supports the tuition of several girl students at PACE High School in Nyahururu, Kenya – towards her passion to ensure gender parity in spaces considered “the least of these.”
