This year’s Through the Eyes of Art, a Black History Month celebration event explores parenting in the Black community through the lens of the millennial caregiver. From Beyoncé ballads dedicated to her daughter Blue Ivy, to hit shows like Black-ish that dive deep into topics that make us laugh and cry, the exploration of parenting through a Black lens has always been both present and powerful in pop culture.
With MoPOP’s special livestream event fast approaching on February 25, we invite you to take a listen to the playlist embedded below.
