The 2024 Black Joy Parade theme, “Redefinition of a Hustler” embraces the creative,
multi-talented, and resourceful ones who continue to drive Black culture and community forward.

Because “moms are the ultimate hustlers”, the Black Joy Parade is partnering with Black Infant Health to create a Lil’ Joy space near the main parade stage for young families with a nursing lounge, games, and storytime.
