What Exactly is Blackness Ascendant? / The Theme Of Happily Natural Day 16

In astrological tradition; the ascendant signifies a person’s awakening consciousness, similar to how the Sun’s appearance on the eastern horizon signifies the dawn of a new day. The 2018 emergence of Happily Natural Day represents 16 years of promoting love for black people. Blackness Ascendant signifies an awakening of the consciousness of people of African ancestry; their rising power and influence and their taking ownership of their communities, their health, and the land.
 
The ascendant is specific to time and place; and at this time people of African ancestry are under attack. Gentrification, health inequity, wealth disparity, police brutality, the prison industrial complex, racial violence and infant mortality – the list of toxins are immeasurable. Happily Natural Day presents a key solution; that people of color take control of their communities particularly through sustainable urban agriculture. At the root of many of our community issues lies of lack of connection to nature, a need for investment in social entrepreneurship and a focus on the transformation of the built environment.
