The mental health and wellness program includes an EP produced by MMYYKK and featuring guided meditations by Big K.R.I.T. Kwasi Kessie, Kenji Summers, and others; a four-minute thematic short film directed and edited by Andrew Morrow and an “In Conversation” interview series focused on the healing journeys of Black creatives led by Okayplayer editor-in-chief/VP of content Rachel Hislop, which kicks off with a fireside chat with GRAMMY-nominated rapper Vic Mensa.
“Passage is a celebration of resilience, positivity, healing, and a safe space created in support of millennials of color. We know what processing Black pain and trauma looks like, we are all too familiar with it. We have been inundated with a stream of negative messaging associated with identifying as a person of color in this country, while also fighting dual pandemics,” said Rachel Hislop, VP of content/editor-in-chief. “The last four years have been hard, but they have been exceptionally hard for Black and brown communities and it’s clear that our responsibility to heal will be ours alone, so we wanted to do our part to contribute to that healing. Passage is a true labor of love and collaboration that we hope will serve to amplify the collective stories and healing practices for people of color, by people of color.”
The EP is available across all major streaming platforms here.
