WHEN WE SEE OURSELVES
BLACK X BROWN LOVE
Amidst the chaos of 2020, Black x Brown communities found themselves disproportionately affected by the pandemic and systemic racism. Our values were tested. Instead of allowing the turmoil to divide our communities further, this moment brought us closer together.
Black x Brown relationships are an inevitable reality wherever the two communities coexist. These relationships are often plagued by stories of racism, classism, and Anti-Blackness — rather than celebrated.
Inspired by a racial uprising not witnessed since the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, When We See Ourselves is a collection of intimate short stories, reflections, and artwork providing a first-person account of Black x Brown love. These love stories transcend race, religion, culture, caste, borders and more - allowing us to reflect on stereotypes and biases within our lives and ultimately, help create a better world.
