Black and Proud is a new video series on The Root that focuses on the pride that our favorite black celebrities, tastemakers and thought leaders feel about being black. Many of them talk about our resilience and strength throughout history, some talk about our undeniable talents, while others mention our dance skills, dopeness and more.

Whatever the reasoning, it’s clear that being black is an incredible experience, despite society’s negative narratives around blackness.
