The world was devastated by the volatile virus, COVID-19. In addition to the pandemic, the United States grappled with one of its many prevalent viruses, racism. The murders of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, and countless others sparked a new wave of fury for many Americans as they pushed back against police brutality and systemic injustice to people of color. A pain all too familiar amongst black and brown families, this heightened the need for individuals to lean on sustainable outlets for self-preservation. Through dance, rest, agriculture, or laughter many found intuitive ways to cope with a system that constantly denies their human rights.
With this in mind, we ask: How did you define perseverance in 2020?
