What does the reclamation of Black joy look like to @yarashahidi? “Mentorship,” she tells @kaitlyngreenidge. “When I think of fashion, for example, I’m grateful to be in a community. My stylist, @jasonbolden, has always prioritized what it means to support Black people in the fashion industry (pictured here wearing a suit by @kennethize, bodysuit by @nubianskin, and earrings by @shopbombchel.) We’ve consistently been in conversations about how to use this space for something that’s powerful. Who can we open doors for? Who can we be in community with? Joy comes from being able to consistently embrace our sense of community and revel in our culture year-round. We must believe that there is something that we’re fighting for in order to keep fighting.” Link in bio for the full interview.
