PhD student Demond Hill: "For Black children, play can be transformative"

August 10, 2021

"Black children’s play, playful expressions, and playfulness are too often restricted and threatened in an anti-Black world. [Tamir] Rice, [Ma'Khia] Bryant, and [Kaia] Rolle are devastating examples of the reality that Black children are seen as disruptive, violent, and harmful to the greater society. That’s exactly why play continues to be a powerful way that Black children radically heal from traumas, resist violence, and experience joy and liberation."
