The New Negroes
The New Negroes
"New Negro" is a term popularized during the Harlem Renaissance referring to Black Americans speaking up, telling their own stories, and affirming their various identities in order to dismantle outdated assumptions and beliefs. This show is KINDA doing that, but with silliness and jokisms.
