Black Love in Public (BLIP) is a collaborative social practice based in a connection to the African continent and an investment in the re-integration of the mind and the body. Through the preparation for and performance of displays of public affection amongst Black people, BLIP dissolves some of the simpler barriers to intimacy and uncovers solutions for greater honesty and communication across age, gender, and class.
For ONE hour on ONE day, BLIP calls upon Black folks to SHOW their love for one another. This is an OPPORTUNITY to CLAIM SPACE… In a time that is slowly rendering Blackness invisible. In a time that fails to support us as emotional beings. This is an EXAMPLE to OURSELVES + to OTHERS… That Black folks are capable of deep + sustained affection towards each other. That we are able to heal wounds, old + new, starting with the simple act of TOUCH.
Give a hug & show black love
