People Are Sharing Their Black Boy Joy And It Is The Best Thing Ever

Thanks Chance.

Last week after the VMAs, Chance the Rapper, shared photos of himself along with the hashtag #BlackBoyJoy.

The hashtag existed before Chanceโ€™s tweet, but the rapperโ€™s use of the inspiring phrase lead to a huge number of men sharing photos.

And people are loving it.

#blackboyjoy is awesome. We steal boyhood and joy from so many black boys & men. I love to see a happy, playful black boy/man.

The pictures people have shared are guaranteed to make your day. Like this boy going down a slide.
