Jade Ariana's i just want to be in the Black euphoria with you

i just want to be in the Black euphoria with you explores both the desire for familial inclusion and spiritual transcendence from white supremacy because those who long for the Black euphoria know it cannot exist in the fullest of its expression and assume its own birthright in the archive of Black living and Black dying.
