"Black is beautiful" is a phrase that slips glibly off our tongues now-a-days.  In 2017 we must ask ourselves if this so easily spoken and written phrase is one that we really believe.What does it mean to be Black and who's doing the defining? Is Black beautiful because of or in spite of? Is being Black more than the color of our skin and the texture of our hair?  If Black is --of a very high standard; excellent (beautiful), why are we so quick to be ashamed of our Blackness?  If Black is--having qualities that give great satisfaction to see, hear, think about, etc.(beautiful), why do we rush to divorce ourselves from what we are?  Is Black beautiful? Who's doing the defining? Who's setting the standards and driving the narrative?  How did we go from Black is beautiful to defacing, depreciating and defaming ourselves in order to be more acceptable to our enemy --the Black change up?  Join the panel as they discuss these and other questions on the beauty of Blackness.
