Watch: Through the Eyes of Art - Millennial Parenting

The Chosen Few and MoPOP present the 9th annual Through the Eyes of Art, a Black History Month celebration. This annual event brings together artists, community leaders, politicians, and tastemakers from across the state of Washington to celebrate the Black experience.

This year we explored 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.

Featuring celebrity guest Mashonda Tifrere plus a panel of millennial parents, the special livestream event allowed us to center the diverse experiences, observations, and approaches that impact and inform how we are raising the next generation and create a safe space for Black parents to dialogue, grieve, laugh, and reflect on the parenting journey.

The full video is embedded above and as you enjoy this year's event we'd love it if you could take a few minutes to fill out a survey to help us continue to build and improve upon public programming like this!
