Younger Sundays invites audiences into an extended meditation on expressions of clarity in African American lives as meaningful cultural, political, and social texts. Sunday, the one day that African Americans often had time for themselves, acts as the program’s muse and guide to contemplating freedom, love, and beauty. This BLACK BOX showcases the brilliant utterances of African American Sundays and explores the digital possibilities for sharing this insight for 21st century citizens.
