In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter protests in the summer of 2020, RISK! began releasing these episodes compiling some of our favorite stories on racism, resilience, and Black joy in America as shared by African American storytellers on the podcast over the years. There’s plenty of other wonderful stories that have been shared by Black folks on RISK! that focus on different aspects of their lives, but these particular stories honor the life experiences where being Black was central. We’re so grateful to these storytellers for the inspiration and enlightenment we’ve found in these stories.
If you have a story to tell, reach out to us!
