VIDEO: Staying Together is a web series that takes place within the film, “Let’s Stay Together,” by Joshua Bee Alafia. In Episode Two, they reflect on the effects of slavery and the lost sense of identity through middle passage trauma. They begin the inquiry of the root of our departure from strong family units. Alafia asks Why are we having such a hard time staying together and raising these youth?”
Hats off to Joshua and his entire team for having the vision and courage to bring forth a webseries and upcoming film that looks at relationships, marriage, and family in the black community and throughout the African diaspora. We need more folks who are willing to stop playing and start pushing. We need more folks who are not afraid to create the much needed dialogue around our pain and our promise as a people so that true and authentic change can occur.
We will be sure to bring you each episode of this awesome webseries as it is released. Episode # 3 will be on the site next week.
Watch Episode 1 HERE.
BLAM Fam: Remember, we must support what we want to see! Stop Playing. Start Pushing.
