"There have been moments of solitude and silence when I have literally taken my right hand, placed it over my left shoulder, and patted myself on the back for surviving small-town Ohio. And if you are a black person from small-town Ohio, you deserve it, too. Go ahead. Do it now. Pat yourself on the back and be proud that you are still standing upright. Because, I may be biased, but I am fully confident that the entire state of Ohio is nothing but a racist cesspool."-from Public Source 

Brian Broome has *infused* the CLARITY collection of 12 clear Black Joy ritual objects. Each ritual object includes a unique meditation on Brian's Black Joy and an original ritual meant to amplify your own joy.
